Despite a few surprising days of coastal flooding, work continues at the Wreck Pond Restoration site. As of Friday, Feb. 5, 2016, 160 feet of the fish passage has been installed. The crew is working hard to backfill this area and regrade while also removing the coffer dam and wood pilings from this section and placing it in the next 200 foot section.
In the meantime, preparations are underway for a Spring start for adult river herring sampling and post-construction monitoring, as well as a Lunch & Learn program at the end of February.
The American Littoral Society will be hosting a Lunch and Learn on Saturday, February 27. The program will include the short film “Climate Change and the Jersey Shore” and a presentation on the Wreck Pond project by our Habitat Restoration Director, Al Modjeski. This popular event has reached capacity, however a link to the video and presentation will be made available on this website after the program. Please contact Habitat Restoration Coordinator, Jenna Krug at firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions. Please check back next week for another project update.
