This preserve is the result of human disturbance and the resilience of nature. The upland, created by filling, evolved into a grassland and a small woodland dominated by tall cottonwood trees, almost all the result of natural seed dispersion. The tidal wetland and dune area accreted (grew by accumulation) over the 50 years since I-95 was constructed. At low tide, the preserve is approximately 15 acres, from mud flat to dune to salt marsh to upland. A loop trail connects the shore and upland area, and also connects to the historic City Point neighborhood.
