Two Rivers Public Charter School Students Help Transplant More Than 2,500 Wild Rice Seedlings

Last Friday, students from Two Rivers Public Charter School helped the AWS education team transplant more than 2,500 wild rice seedlings. The wild rice seedlings had been germinating in a greenhouse for about a week and were ready to be transplanted into their own seed cups. The seedlings are now growing in AWS’s wet beds at Bladensburg Waterfront Park. Later this spring, the AWS education team, with the help of other DC area students, will transplant the seedlings into the marshes of the Anacostia River.

AWS Educator Ariel Trahan explains the process.
