Chesapeake Bay

Detailed Description

Phragmites reeds and sea lettuce are seen near a restoration project that uses a living shoreline, an artificial stone ribbon reef and low headland breakwaters at each end of Hail Cove to protect a portion of Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge in Kent County, Md., on June 26, 2014. The project was a partnership with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and several other partners, and is designed to slow the rate of erosion and protect wildlife habitat in an area visited by songbirds, shorebirds, waterfowl, terrapins and other animals.
