A fun install day!

Kevin Holcomb, USFWS biologist operates the air boat.


Today I was assisted by USFWS biologists while we installed two platforms inside the eastern impoundment at Forsythe NWR in Oceanville. We used the air boat shown above to transport people and the platforms to the sites where they were installed. The air was so cool and it's impact on the mud and marsh is much less than having people try and cross a ditch at low tide.
We were accompanied by a photographer from the Asbury Park Press. The photos will be with an article, about the grant from Exelonto install all these platforms in and around Great Bay. It will be in the newspaper on Friday. There will also be an article in the Tuckerton Beacon on Thursday.
