Poplar Island, Chesapeake Bay

Saturday - June 18, 2011Views: 4961
Took a tour of Poplar Island just off the Eastern Shore, ~25 mi. SE of Annapolis, the biggest habitat restoration project ever on the bay: Re-building a ~1,800-acre island to its 1800s footprint with clean dredge spoil from the approach channels to Baltimore. Has been the most successful environmental reclamation project in the bay and one of the best on the East Coast. Harbor of refuge in PI harbor for shoal-draft boats only, free visits by pre-arrangement through MD DNR. Neat video of the diamondback terrapin project on PI here:
