Vegetation and soil play an important role in the health of an estuary’s ecosystem. Culverts, bridges and other physical barriers reduce the inflow of water and the exchange of sediment and isolate what should be connected habitats. What happens when the barriers are removed? A recent research project monitored the restoration of four estuary sites in Western Washington and tested the hypothesis that recovery of a restored area continues over a significant period of time. Find out more about this important restoration work, what was studied, what was learned, and how the results can assist in planning for the restoration of other estuary environments. 

Presenter: Dr. Jenise Bauman
