Stony Island, Detroit River

We restored herpetofauna, avian, and fish habitats in coastal wetlands on Stony Island. The project involved restoring and monotoring native plant communities, and creating shoals, woody habitat and hibernaculum. This benefits the island's fish, amphibians, reptiles and birds, including the herons roosting above.
