Prime Hook NWR is embarking on a large-scale tidal marsh restoration project in the wetlands previously managed as freshwater impoundments. It's one of the largest marsh restoration projects ever in the eastern U.S. Restoration from degraded open water conditions to back-barrier salt marsh habitats will involve re-building dunes, closing breaches, and restoring tidal channels throughout the marsh. The restored hydrological and salinity regimes will support the natural recolonization of salt marsh grasses in Unit II and parts of Unit III.
