These plantings not only helped to stabilize the erosion, but have helped to increase water quality which was affected by excessive nutrient loading and other factors. The plants have provided both form and function throughout the year, while filtering excess nutrients and enhancing habitat for frogs, turtles, fish, mussels, aquatic insects, and resident and migratory birds.
