Escambia Bay, Site 2 in 2008

This is an example (before and after) of a LSL from Escambia Bay in which only saltmarsh vegetation (Spartina alterniflora, smooth cordgrass and Juncus roemerianus, black needle rush) was installed in 2001. The eroded shoreline experienced low wave energy, and the fetch was less than one mile of open water, making this site a good candidate for being stabilized simply by planting.
