The Library grass in situ (“in place”).

Staff at the Alexandria Library grew aquatic grass in support of efforts to help save the Chesapeake Bay. Three months ago, library staff attended training sponsored by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to plant and nurture wild celery in the Library. In mid-May, library staffers Michelle Jerney-Davis and Kevin O’Hagan went to Mason Neck State Park to plant the mature grass in the shallows of the bay. Aquatic vegetation helps to clean the water and also serves as a nursery for blue crabs.
