River Talk - Dam Removals in New Jersey

Tuesday, October 11, 2022 -
7:00pm to 8:30pm

Beth Styler Barry, Director of River Restoration for The Nature Conservancy in NJ, and former Executive Director of the Musconetcong Watershed Association, will give an overview of dams and dam removals in New Jersey. There are 1,700 regulated dams in the State’s rivers and many more unregulated dams. According to experts, the fragmentation of our river systems plays a huge role in loss of biodiversity and abundance of freshwater species and the ecosystems that depend on them, problems that will likely worsen as our climate warms.

This talk will include case studies on the Musconetcong as well as other local rivers.
