ALL Field Trip: Poplar Island

September 25 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Poplar Island, once on the verge of disappearing, is today a national model for habitat restoration and the beneficial use of dredged material. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, teamed with the Maryland Port Administration and other State and Federal agencies to restore the island using dredged material from the Baltimore Harbor and Channel Federal navigation projects. Approximately 40 million cubic yards of dredged material will be placed to develop 570 acres of wetlands and 570 acres of uplands.

A guided tour of the island’s 13 miles of dikes will offer views of emerging habitat for a variety of wildlife species including bald eagles, osprey, heron, and egret as well as insight into the challenges of island restoration.
