The latest issue of the American Littoral Society's biannual magazine just came off the press and will be mailed to our members in the coming days.
The Underwater Naturalist is just one benefit of membership in the Littoral Society. If you are not a member of the society join now and we will mail you a copy of this latest magazine.
This edition of the magazine is focused on climate change and the work being done by the Littoral Society to protect and restore natural coastal defenses that will make our shorelines more resilient to storms and rising sea levels.
Among highlights of this edition are articles on living shorelines, by Littoral Society Restoration Coordinator Zack Royle, a look at the saltmarsh restoration work being done in Jamaica Bay by Don Riepe, Director of the Littoral Society's Northeast Chapter, and the role dunes play in protecting the coast, by Capt. Al Modjeski, Habitat Restoration Program Director for the American Littoral Society.
The magazine also contains the 2015-16 fish tagging report, by Jeff Dement, Fish Tagging Program Director.
