Poplar Island, located in Talbot County in the mid--Chesapeake Bay, has become a national model of environmental restoration. It is the site where an innovative solution for dredged material management is resulting in the restoration of a once vanishing island. The loss of the island and its critical wildlife habitat has been reversed using clean, but nutrient rich, dredged material from the Port of Baltimore?s approach channels. This long term project is providing lessons in successful restoration in eutrophic coastal environments, and in improving resilience of restored tidal marshes to sea level rise. Presented by Lorie Staver, Assistant Research Scientist, UMCES Horn Point, MD.

There is no charge for this presentation. Seating limited to 60 people.
