On March 28th, Ruth Martin led eight Riverpoint neighbors and Josie White in clearing out the fallen stalks of dead Phragmites at the Riverpoint Park wetland  The area will be replanted on May 9th.  In two hours they filled 35 trash bags – and this was in addition to the 55 bags that the Sheriff’s workforce had removed earlier.  The area is now open to the sun and ready for some new plants to find a home.  The plan for May 9th is to plant Spartina patens and other high marsh grasses around the perimeter of the site.  High marsh and upland plants will await planting until the fall, once they see how well the Phragmites has been controlled.
