Restoration of tidal floodplain going ahead at Cape Cod NS

The Herring River Restoration project, which will remove freshwater vegetation that has encroached on the former tidal floodplain, is scheduled to begin at Cape Cod National Seashore in Massachusetts later this fall.

Partnering with AmeriCorps Cape Cod and volunteers from the Friends of Cape Cod National Seashore, the first small steps toward the eventual restoration of hundreds of acres of coastal wetlands will begin as crews clear thick and overgrown vines, shrubs, and small trees from about six acres along the Herring River in the area around High Toss Road in Wellfleet. The group will spend several days on site in fall and winter clearing the areas and piling cut vegetation adjacent to the work site.
