Buffalo District biologist Joshua Unghire among Braddock Bay veg
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District biologist Joshua Unghire stands among vegetation at the Braddock Bay ecosystem restoration project in Greece, NY, September 26, 2018. A barrier out in the bay was built to reduce wave energy causing excessive erosion. Also, because a dam downstream was stabilizing the water levels in Lake Ontario, certain native species were being outcompeted by marsh cattails, and this project worked to thin the cattails and improve conditions for other native species.
