Walton River Salt Marsh HADD Compensation Project

The site (12 ha) was a Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) impoundment that was returned to the tide in 2005. The goal was to restore the natural hydrology to the site, enabling the re-establishment of salt marsh habitat conditions similar to the salt marshes found in this tidal river system. A six-year monitoring program (one year pre- and five years post-restoration) is associated with this project. Restoration activity: breaching a dyke that was originally designed for waterfowl habitat improvement
