Recaptured tidal lands define habitats and elevate visitor esperience.
As envisioned by this conceptual plan, over an acre of tidal wetlands were targeted for restoration. Working in conjunction with a team of terrestrial and marine specialists, Withers & Sandgren mitigated on-site environmental degradation caused by sedimentation, pollution and the construction of urban infrastructure. The restoration plan of the tidal flood and control of urban stormwater runoff will slow the proliferation of non-native species and re-establish a range of native habitats. The recreation plan included boardwalks, interpretive features, trails and overlooks developed and strategically placed for community use.
