Little Fresh Pond Shoreline Restoration and Drainage Improvement Project
Goal: Stabilize the entire shoreline of Little Fresh Pond and a portion of Fresh Pond
The entire shoreline of Little Fresh Pond has been stabilized using coir fascines (coconut fiber logs) and re-graded to reduce bank steepness. The new slopes have been temporarily stabilized with erosion control fabric, and permanently strengthened through seeding and planting with native groundcovers, shrubs, and canopy trees. The fascines were planted by volunteers on Earth Day 2006 using herbaceous wetland plugs. Look here for pictures of the event.
