Team Habitat, a program of the South Jersey RC&D Council, was awarded $50K to provide on-the-ground delivery of projects restoring 100 acres of warm season grasses and wetland habitat within the Delaware Estuary.
Team Habitat Manager, Rick Parenteau, has visited a number of properties and given estimates. Four of these potential projects will be completed this year, and probably another four have a good chance of getting started. Rick has completed one project and started another on April 14. In this effort we have been assisted by volunteers from the NJ Quail Project, federal employees, and non-federal state, county, and local soil conservation districts.
The map to the right depicts the New Jersey portion of the Delaware Estuary. Details of the project will be updated as projects are completed.
