A maritime forest restoration project in Bradley Beach, NJ recently celebrated its third birthday.
The project was begun by Capt. Al Modjeski, Habitat Restoration Director for the American Littoral Society, a year after Hurricane Sandy devastated the NJ coast. Thanks to the continued efforts of volunteers, Monmouth County Master Gardeners, and the municipality, the effort has been very successful.
Although the weather was on the brink of being rainy and bleak, that did not stop a team of dedicated biologists and volunteers from building an oyster reef on the Delaware Bayshore this past Saturday. Committed volunteers and young people braved the weather to work alongside American Littoral Society and Conserve Wildlife Foundation to build a near-shore oyster reef at Dyers Cove, at the end of Dyers Creek Road in Newport, Cumberland County, New Jersey.
