Planting in The Great Marsh- Week 2


We are working approximately 10 miles due east of the Indiana Dunes office, south of Lake Michigan. This week we spent restoring a section of the Great Marsh where we planted Carex stricta and Scirpus validus in areas previously dominated by invasive Cattail and Reed Canary Grass. Upon arrival of our site local NPS Botanist, Dan Mason briefed us on plant ID and techniques for understanding hydrology within the area. By the end of the week we had planted 1.7 acres.
