Current conditions at the marsh are between 1/2 and 2/3 full of water and with normal fall precipitation we should reach full levels in coming months.

Each of the last 2 summers, the entire marsh was sprayed for invasive phragmites. 

This year we did sprayed for invasive phragmites with a helicopter. Phase 1 construction, which included reshaping of the berm and installation of a water control structure was completed in fall of 2019.  This allows us to manipulate water levels for the most beneficial vegetation results.
