Project Title & Description
Strategies for Assessment and Restoration of Resilient Urban Tidal Wetland
The recipient will revise wetland restoration monitoring protocols to evaluate attributes characterizing wetland health and function. These methods will more accurately evaluate the status of existing and restored tidal marshes in the New York City area. The recipient will develop new monitoring guidelines for restoration projects in New York City and improve tidal marsh restoration practices, and it will facilitate a technical workshop engaging state, federal, and non-profit coastal wetland resource managers in these endeavors.
