The Chesapeake Bay Foundation partnered with St. John's College to mechanically remove a decaying wooden bulkhead along College Creek, which runs adjacent to the campus and connects to the Severn River. The deterioration of the bulkhead -- a common sight -- was allowing for the intrusion of tidal flows and the erosion of the shore. The bulkhead was replaced with a small rock sill backfilled with sand and planted with native marsh grasses to create a tidal marsh.
Funding agencies and partners for this project include the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and NOAA. The NOAA's Restoration Center funded a total of $70,000.
