Wagon Hill Farm Living Shoreline Phase II

The tidal shoreline along Wagon Hill Farm is exhibiting considerable erosion, partially the result of foot traffic along the shoreline. The erosion has been exacerbated by natural conditions including wind, wave, ice action, and shading from mature trees on the bank. This erosion is continuing to degrade shoreline and salt marsh habitats and has negative impacts on wildlife, shellfish, and fish habitats. This project will complete a second phase of work (Phase II) to plan a living shoreline stabilization project for Wagon Hill Farm’s eroding shoreline at a segment of the Wagon Hill Farm shoreline.
