Restoring salt marshes

Chrissy Word, an educator at Rocking the Boat in the Bronx, collecting mussels in salt marshes along the Bronx River during low tide. Scientists will analyze these mollusks to design a restoration project to bring more mussels to the Bronx River.

Students from Rocking the Boat will be maintaining restored ecosystems with mussels.

NYC police on the other bank of the river were observing us harvesting these animals.
