Maryland DNR restoration activity on the Potomac River began in 2003 at five sites in the lower Potomac River: Piney Point, St. George's Island, Cherryfield Point, Sage Point, and Kitt's Point. All of these sites were identified as suitable habitats for Z. marina recolonization based on the MD DNR SAV Restoration Targeting System.  Restoration efforts have continued since 2003 with the most recent seeding taking place at St. George's Island and Cherryfield Point. This page serves as an online resource for viewing maps associated with MD DNR's eelgrass restoration on the Potomac River.
