NOAA Photo Library Image - r0023022

This is an image that shows Barren Island after the restoration work was completed. Dredge material was placed to support the planting. The planting was conducted to allow the marsh to fill in and establish itself before the geotube disintegrated. Prior to the restoration, this area was a high-energy shallow water environment.
