In 2003 the first phase at Site 1 of Project Greenshores was completed
with minimal re-plantings in the summer of 2004. Seven acres of constructed
oyster reef consists of 14,000 tons of Kentucky limestone, 6,000 tons of
recycled concrete and 40 wave attenuators. The eight acre salt marsh
incorporated 35,000 cubic yards of sand, 40,000 Spartina alterniflora
(smooth cordgrass) plants and 3,900 propagated seedlings of the emergent
seagrass Ruppia maritima, also known as widgeon grass.
