Poplar Island, recently on the verge of disappearing, is today a national model for habitat restoration and the beneficial use of dredged material.
Just off the Chesapeake Bay coastline, about 34 miles south of Baltimore in Talbot County, Maryland, Poplar Island is being returned to its former size and important ecological function while helping to ensure the economic vitality of the region.
