The next phase of Hurricane Sandy recovery is officially underway! The old marsh walkway which was built in 1987, has been removed and work on the new structure is soon to begin. The newly designed elevated walkway, in a much better location, with new research and education stations. It will give visitors unparalleled access to the marsh so they can get up close and personal with the coastal ecosystem.
It is imperative that we finish the rebuilding effort before the Osprey return in March – or we forfeit our FEMA grant that will cover a portion of the rebuilding costs. This is a remarkable opportunity to enhance our public education programs, while expanding our wetland research capabilities.
