Long Island refuges commence $15 million cleanup and marsh restoration projects

Nov. 6, 2013 –The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will begin projects to clean up trees and debris left behind by Hurricane Sandy and restore protective coastal marshes at several of its Long Island refuges in the weeks and months ahead. Two regionally-based companies will begin tree and debris removal , principally at the Wertheim, Target Rock and Elizabeth A. Morton refuges and the Lido Beach Wildlife Management Area, starting in November. Planning will also begin to restore and enhance tidal marshes, replace invasive plants with native ones, preserve wildlife habitat and mitigate damage from future storms to coastal communities and infrastructure.
