MARSHES Initiative

Staten Island, NY

DLANDstudio is assisting in developing an ecological assessment methodology, feasibility study and design of the New York State Economic Development Corporation’s Mitigation and Restoration Strategies for Habitat and Ecological Sustainability (MARSHES) Initiative Pilot Project. The MARSHES Initiative’s three goals include facilitating larger wetland restoration in ecologically sensitive coastal areas, fostering more predictable and timely permit approvals, and providing greater regulatory certainty of the ecological success of wetland mitigation projects.

The phased project will culminate in the long-term stewardship of the restoration site in Staten Island at Saw Mill Creek.
