Artificial reef planned for Stratford Point for ‘protection’

Nov 10th, 2013 | By | Category: Climate Change

By late April, a reef of 40 concrete dome-like structures in four rows of 10 will be built on 3.5 acres of intertidal zone at the point by a team of Sacred Heart University and Connecticut Audubon Society staffers and volunteers.

The marine project is funded by a $59,000 Long Island Sound Futures grant that is earmarked for the preservation of wildlife habitats in the area.

“We are grateful that the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation recognized the great value of this project and brought its support to the table to help ensure our vision might become a reality,” said Alex Brash, the Audubon Society’s president.
