Twin Island Marsh Restoration
Orchard Beach, Bronx, NY
Excavate a marsh that was historically filled to remove an encroaching Phragmites australis monoculture and re-establish a functional low and high salt marsh. As part of a value engineering proposal the dredge material was used on site to cover an old building site. This site was then seeded with native grasses and wildflowers and a pedestrian trail designed and installed for park use.
