Sunken Meadow planting is latest step in $2.5 million restoration and resiliency effort
Volunteers came together in this family-friendly event to restore the stream bank along Whitford Brook in Mystic, CT.
For the first time in over 350 years, Whitford Brook flows free! Save the Sound, supported by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Patagonia, championed the effort to remove Hyde Pond dam in Mystic, CT. The entire dam removal process was captured on camera and transformed into a time lapse video.

Nearly 60 volunteers and 10 coordinators braved the muddy conditions to plant over 3000 plants over 3 hours. This is part of an ongoing process with the goal of converting 1 acre of mudflats into salt marsh, a feat calling for 12,000 individual cordgrass plants.
