Replanting projects

View from buffer NIA

After retaining the plants rescued from the site prior to construction for nearly three years, WNPR is slated to replant herbaceous rescues this spring at the National Institute of Aerospace in Hampton. Some of the site native shrubs have already been planted by the building, post-development, on the site. More perennials, including copious Elliott's goldenrod, are to be planted at the institute as well as in an adjacent protected buffer. There are plans to construct trail in the buffer. The site native plants will be featured along this trail.

Similar work is planned at Riverside's Doctors' Hospital in James City County once the facility is closer to completion and landscaping begins.
