Triton's Salt Marsh Plant Project

Over the past two weeks, we have spent 2 classes plotting and digging holes and then planting different shrubs and trees. The purpose was for purifying the water drainage before it reached the salt marsh. We planted two indigenous species of plants: Arrowwood viburnum (viburnum dentatum) and Inkberry (Ilexglabra). These were added to the White Pine (Pinus strobus) and Crabapple (Malus pumila) already living here. On the following pages we will display and briefly explain all the plants now planted at Triton for helping in the protection of the salt marsh.
