Emerson Woods Stream Restoration Project

Leave a comment

Please see the attached information from Bergen SWAN.

The Emerson Woods project is a recent excellent example of sustainable watershed management. Some of the methods used on breaking fast running water overflows were using natural elements like planted graduating stream embankments along with strategically placed fallen tree trunks with exposed root systems.

A two year part time Stream Restoration Technician position is available, a possible internship opportunity or service learning project.
