Queens Borough President’s Ecology Concern

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz joined the Jamaica Bay Ecowatchers on Friday, July 18, on a boat tour of the Bay to observe the restoration projects taking place on the marsh lands in the areas of Broad Channel and the Rockaway Peninsula.

Ecowatchers co-founders Dan Mundy Sr. (l.) and Dan Mundy Jr. (r.) and Jamaica Bay advocate and film maker Dan Hendrick updated the Borough President on projects such as the Sunset Cove wetlands restoration effort, a federally funded initiative to restore the shoreline of the southern portion of Broad Channel Island.

The project will create wetlands along the shoreline and include a rock and oyster revetment barrier, a dune berm with a walking trail and an upland forest. The Borough President said projects like the Sunset Cove restoration are ecologically sound and play an important role in protecting the communities along Jamaica Bay against hurricanes and other serious weather events.
