Crown Point Bank Restoration at Kendall Frost Marsh Reserve project removed invasive plants around a .3-acre western section of Kendall Frost Marsh Reserve and restored the bank with native plants suitable in the ecotone. The project improved habitat for the animal species that use this marshland (including the federally-endangered Ridgway’s Rail), lowered long-term maintenance costs to the Reserve, and met neighbors’ desire for bank stabilization and privacy.
