In honor of Earth Day 2014, the American Littoral Society and Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ are pleased to present a special screening and reception for "A Race Against Time" at the historic Levoy Theatre. This thirty minute film documents the ambitious restoration of Delaware Bayshore beaches in order to restore vital habitat for at-risk horseshoe crabs and migratory shorebirds in the months after the destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy. This project is currently in its second phase and is funded by the NJ Recovery Fund. The film is produced by CWF, Greener New Jersey Productions and the Delaware Riverkeeper Network.
A question-and-answer session after the video will feature project leader and biologist Larry Niles and restoration partners, CWF Executive Director, David Wheeler and American Littoral Society's Executive Director, Tim Dillingham. Food and wine is generously provided by Runaway Chefs and Bellview Winery. This event is free and open to the public but advance registration is recommended.
