River Bank Stabilization
Stephen Foster State Park on the Suwannee River

In October 2014, we stabilized a portion of the Suwannee River bank at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park with coconut fiber cloth and native plants selected specifically for the local ecotype including palmetto, viburnum, cypress, button bush, sweet spires, indian wood oats, teaweed and more grasses.

Below is a compilation of pics from planting day, up to 2.5 years post-planting. You can really see the progression.
