The rebuilding of Poplar Island has been an project going on 16 years.

“This is your office,” Garrett said. “You know, you get to see wildlife: birds flying by, see little animals, muskrats running on the ground. It’s a wonderful experience. It’s absolutely beautiful, beautiful. And it’s very hard to imagine that this was man made because it just looks so natural.”
