National Institute of Aerospace rescue and replanting

The National Institute of Aerospace in Hampton

The National Institute of Aerospace in Hampton contacted WNPR prior to building its new facility. WNPR rescued native plants from the site. After the facility was built, WNPR returned the native rescued shrubs to the site so that National Institute of Aerospace could use them for landscape plantings. WNPR is retaining herbaceous plants from the site that will be replanted in the site's buffer.
