An agricultural acreage in the Land Between (Northumberland County) is home to an ongoing marsh restoration experiment: to assess the impact of the invasive Reed Canary Grass on the hydrology of marsh ecosystems. An ecological swimming pool, constructed to EU standards using native plants as the sole filtration system, will be built next year.
