ShoreRivers, Preston join to preserve park

Posted

PRESTON — ShoreRivers and the Town of Preston teamed up to enhance James T. Wright Memorial Park by implementing stormwater and conservation improvements, all while beautifying the area. This project includes bioswales to manage stormwater from nuisance flooding, more trees for shade and beauty, and conservation meadows to support local pollinators.

Bioswales are ditches in which vegetation is allowed to grow. The bioswale then acts as a filter for excess water.

This restoration project was brought to fruition after a ShoreRivers intern (a Preston resident) saw the flooding at Preston Park as an opportunity for change.

“With the help of our Choptank Riverkeeper Matt Pluta, and the Preston Town Manager, restoration efforts were underway,” a statement from ShoreRivers said. The work done in collaboration with Preston acts as a reminder of the change that individuals can spark by voicing their concerns.”
