WSSI Educates at 2017 Heron Fest

Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc. (WSSI) staff, many of whom are active in the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the International Erosion Control Association (MAC-IECA), provided a MAC-IECA Earth Day component  at Kincora’s annual HeronFest. WSSI staff Dan Fisk, Lauren Shaffer, and Natasha Nahas educated festival goers about Kincora’s on-site wetland mitigation and stream restoration projects that WSSI designed and is actively monitoring. In spite of the rain, attendees enjoyed hay rides to the nearby Great Blue Heron rookery and took home 160 red maple, sweetgum, and Virginia pine seedlings, courtesy of Pinelands Nursery (in coordination with WSSI and MAC-IECA).
