Coonamessett River Restoration: Results of Phase 1.
(6:41). Learn how biologists are measuring the success of the project in terms of habitat created, number and diversity of species, etc.
Herring tagging. (6:40). Learn about the herring tagging and "Adopt-a-herring" program that the Coonamessett River Trust has been carrying out for years. The tagging provides information about how the fish move through the river system, where they get stuck, and where they are more vulnerable to predation. This in turn helped prioritize what areas or features of the river to prioritize for restoration.
