Fish passage construction is complete at Wreck Pond. 

In early November, 2016, construction crews from Simpson and Brown attached the final section of concrete box culvert completing the 600 foot long structure that will serve as a connection between Wreck Pond and the Atlantic Ocean. Completion of the passage -- which will improve tidal flushing in the pond, reduce flooding in the surrounding community, and help migratory fish reach breeding grounds in the pond's watershed -- is the culmination of several years of hard work by the American Littoral Society, US Fish and Wildlife Service, the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, the Borough of Spring Lake, and Leon S. Avakian LLC.

The project milestone was marked on November 21, 2016 with a press event. Those who spoke at the event included: DEP Deputy Commissioner David Glass, Congressman Chris Smith, Freeholder Director Thomas Arnone, Spring Lake Mayor Jennifer Naughton, USFWS NJ Field Supervisor Eric Shrading, and American Littoral Society Executive Director Tim Dillingham.

Protecting marine life and habitat is what we do,

and we won’t stop now.  

With your help the American Littoral Society has defended the coast for more than 50 years.  

In the coming days and years, the Society will continue to protect the coastal environment and its inhabitants, respond to threats like climate change, and oppose oil and gas drilling in the Atlantic and Arctic oceans.   

We won’t stop speaking out for the coast and oceans, no matter how hard the job becomes.  

This work is crucial because healthy coastal areas are buffers against storms and account for 40 percent of the US economy, while healthy oceans contribute to the air we breathe and the food we eat.  

Like the tide, Government support of such efforts will ebb and flow. Therefore, we continue to rely on those of you who love the coast.  

Count on the American Littoral Society to keep you informed and involved. Our work, like democracy itself, is a participatory process.   

Working together, we can meet the coming challenges.
