Conservationists take over James City marina garden

A few more butterflies may be flitting around James City County Marina this spring.

The county Economic Development Authority agreed Thursday to allow Coastal Virginia Wildlife Observatory to replant a neglected garden on property rented by Billsburg Brewery at the marina.

The lease between the authority and Billsburg, the tenant, allows the brewery to improve the property’s landscaping, according to county documents.

The garden could serve as a springboard into future efforts to beautify the marina area as the county seeks to develop it further.
