The public is invited to participate in an online meeting to discuss the National Estuarine Research Reserve
August 3, 2020 — Connecticut Audubon members and the public in general are invited to participate in an online meeting that will help plan the environmental review of the proposed Connecticut National Estuarine Research Reserve.
This public scoping session for the reserve’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement is set for 7 p.m., Tuesday, August 4.
The meeting will be held online via the Webex virtual meeting application. For more information on the meeting and how to participate and use Webex, please visit the National Estuarine Research Reserve homepage.
The reserve would include some of the best wildlife habitat on the Connecticut River estuary and in southeastern Connecticut, including coves, islands, and marshes in Old Lyme. Now under consideration by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the reserve would encompass the Lord Cove and Great Island Wildlife Management Areas in Old Lyme, and Bluff Point and Haley Farm State Parks in Groton.
