We will explore a unique urban ecological restoration project that was completed in 2017. Sand and gravel pathways, which also filter runoff during storm events and create seepage areas, will guide us along restored wetland, stream, sand seepage bog, shoreline and woodland habitat. Habitat was restored to support an array of native plant species including Chamaecyparis thyoides (Atlantic white cedar), Magnolia virginiana (Sweetbay magnolia), Vaccinium macrocarpon (American cranberry), Kalmia latifolia (Mountain laurel), Iris virginica, sphagnum moss, ferns, asters, water lilies, skunk cabbage, spring ephemerals, rushes, sedges, and much more.
