Setting up the high marsh experiment
This past week Steve, Dontrece, Tim, Jacob and Andy Penniman made great progress setting up the high marsh experiment. We trenched in front of all the plots, and installed plastic barriers in 4 of five plots where we're trying to divert ground water into adjacent plots. The rest of the work should be done this week (we ran out of plastic). We'll know within a couple weeks (or after the first heavy rain) if the barriers are working as hoped.
