Early Sign of Experiment’s Success?

Spotted Sandpiper Nest June 2015 DonSmithJust one month after the Port Authority of NY/NJ established two experimental plots in a marsh in Carlstadt, this Spotted Sandpiper nest was observed in the one of them.

The two plots were cleared, subtlely graded, planted, and fenced for study. The experiment aims to determine the marsh’s suitability for freshwater wooded wetland mitigation. The property is owned by the Meadowlands Conservation Trust.
