Watch This Restoration Take Off!

Sunday, I went out with Public Laboratory's Mat Lippincott to map a marsh restoration built by Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation.  

And it's great to see these plants take off!  Plants that are more protected have been growing more vigorously at this beachfront at the Lake. It normally takes plants up to two years to grow into clumps this large, but here we've seen clumps at a mere three months. 

This video was taken by wideangle lens camera on a pole, to give it a 30 foot perspective that you can't normally see. Check it out!
