Improving Circulation and Drainage in Mangrove and Salt Marsh Habitats
Bahia Honda is one of Florida’s most popular parks with diverse wildlife, tropical beaches, uplands, and wetlands. In the low-lying Florida Keys healthy wetlands require daily tidal exchange and good drainage. Land filling for roads and park facilities has blocked natural flow, and many original culverts no longer function. U S Hwy 1 is a solid barrier to tidal exchange across Bahia Honda’s central lagoon.
