wetland scene

The Project will restore vernal wetland to a 1.5-acre weed infested field. Site topography will be altered to restore vernal wetland hydrology and associated native vegetation communities. The project site will then be inoculated with seed material for plant species characteristic of vernal wetlands. Habitat will be greatly enhanced for rare native plants, and waterfowl and shorebirds.
