Poplar Island was once a thriving place stretching across 1000 acres. It had a town, a school, a post office -- until it started to sink, thanks to sea-level rise, erosion and land-mismanagement. But as WAMU environmental reporter Sabri Ben-Achour tells us, with a pile of luck scooped from the bottom of the bay, Poplar Island is coming back, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to use it as a wildlife refuge.
