Trinity Center will be planting marsh grasses to restore the salt marsh at Sanders’ Point, a part of the conference center near and dear to the hearts of many who come here.  Human and natural activities have eroded away the marsh that acts as a natural barrier in front of Sanders’ Point.  We are planning on installing a marsh sill just past the new marsh grasses to help stop further erosion and eventually build the marsh up.  We may be doing some preparation work for the sill by bagging oyster shells at this event.
