Join me this October 13th for a walk along the eastern shore of Staten Island.
After Hurricane Sandy, members of three communities on the eastern coast of Staten Island—Oakwood Beach, Ocean Breeze, and Graham Beach— decided to sell their homes to the state and not rebuild. Participants opted in to a program that allows them to sell their homes at pre-Sandy value, to the State of New York, which is now returning hundreds of parcels of land to nature. Come visit this new buffer zone with me and we will talk about the ecology of salt marshes, managed retreat from the shore, adaptation and rewilding, and the natural history of Staten Island.
