Urban & Community Forestry Program: Creque Marine Railway Landscape Planting Project

As a result of generous funding from the Department of Agriculture, the St. Thomas Historical Trust and Virgin Islands National Park are currently re-planting and landscaping the Creque Marine Railway area with appropriate indigenous plants to provide erosion control, enhance the appearance of the site, and introduce the public to the native vegetation of the region.
