In 2008 the Wetlands Conservancy acquired 122 acres of forested upland, pasture and tidal marsh along Starr Creek. This location had areas of young plantation with patches of mature conifers. Numerous issues were discovered that included: lack of woody debris along wetland streams, invasive species and Douglas Fir infected with Swiss Needle Cast.
The goal of this project was to improve forest, meadow and riparian health, as well as improve wildlife habitat quality by thinning out Douglas Fir in the vicinity of other conifer species, planting for tree and plant diversity, controlling invasive weeds, adding structure and nesting boxes for wildlife habitat and accelerating growth of large trees.
