Grasses for the Masses


As part of Ware Academy’s marine biology program, 8th-graders chose to mentor 3rd-graders by participating in the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s “Grasses for the Masses.” Both grades have been harvesting the Bay grass wild celery from seed for about 10 weeks now. To represent this project and Ware Academy, Caitlin Blankenship (left) and Emily Brown (right), along with 3rd grade teacher Kim Ward planted the grasses at Westover Plantation on the James River on May 6. This is just one of the school’s “Be-A-Ware” projects to help educate and empower its students to become stewards of their environment.
