Clean Water Rule Under Attack
On Tuesday, June 21, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt announced that the Trump administration has begun the formal process to end the Clean Water Rule.
We need your help to stand against this change, which favors polluters over the people of the United States.
This spring the American Littoral Society will be conducting school field trips at the Wreck Pond restoration site. The field trips are part of the pond restoration project and are intended to continue educational programs begun at some area schools over the winter.
Field trips will involve students from St. Catherine School in Spring Lake, NJ, Wall High School in Wall Township, NJ, and Communication High School, which is part of the Monmouth County Vocational School District. Field trips will run through May and into the beginning of June.
Horseshoe crab tagging will resume in the Shark River estuary on Tuesday, May 23 with a training/tagging event starting at the L Street Beach in Belmar, NJ. Volunteers can participate in tagging and monitoring events through June 23. Data from the work is provided to the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
Tagging and monitoring crabs helps provide information on population trends and crab movement, which provides a small window into the health of an important and ancient species. The spawning season of the Horseshoe Crab is the only time they come ashore and the season is just a few short weeks in May and June.
