About 50 people attended Saturday’s Lunch and Learn for an update about the Wreck Pond restoration project and the future of the Jersey Shore in the face of a changing climate. Executive Director, Tim Dillingham introduced the film, “Climate Change and the Jersey Shore” with a brief overview and spoke about how we need to change our habits to reduce our carbon input. Capt. Al Modjeski provided a presentation on the background, goals, and progress of the work on the 73-acre coastal lake.
You can watch the Climate Change video below:
The knife gate, which will control whether the fish passage is open or closed, is now installed. Newly installed sections of box culvert have also been put in place and covered with sand. The coffer dam has been relocated to accommodate work on the next 100 foot segment. Things will get interesting in the next few weeks as the work edges closer to the ocean.Check back next week for another project update.
