   September 16, 2003 . . .Work has begun on the State Parks project at the site of the former East River Marina in Ferry Village. The marsh stabilization enhancement project which is dealing with that signifant marsh/wetland on the east shore in Beaver Island State Park, is being supported by the Clean Water Clean Air bond in combination with NYS Dept. of State funding. Plans include the creation of some recreational improvement at the old marina including the addition of a car top boat launch and picnic area, and improvement of the interpretative nature trail system. The State has teamed with the Army Corp of the Engineers out of Buffalo and the NYSDEC's invironmental conservation design team for the enhancement project.
