A 50-acre salt marsh restoration area at Jacob’s Point, in Warren is the fourth and final case study in our series on the Challenge of Habitat Restorations. Three new culverts were put in and channels redefined to help water flow and to aid in fish passage. The area was cleared of invasive and is one of the only spots in Rhode Island where there is native phragmities. Other new plantings are now becoming established. We will also see the effect of a 10-acre brush fire that occurred 5 to 7 years ago in this area.
On site tour and discussion will be led by USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service’s District conservationists, John Richard and Melissa Hayden.
We will meet at the parking lot of Environmental Education Center of Audubon Society of Rhode Island, Bristol, RI.
The walk will be about 2 miles, on easy terrain.
