The project consists of over 80 acres of creation, restoration, enhancement, and preservation of forested, non-tidal wetland habitat and 3,798 linear feet of stream and stream buffer restoration. Construction was completed in 2019 and the Project is currently in the third year of the maintenance and monitoring program.
