MRWC Annual Meeting in Fairfield: Coastal Ecosystem Restoration

The 2018 annual meeting of the Mill River Wetland Committee, Inc. (MRWC) will take place on Thursday, March 22, at 7 p.m., in Fairfield, Connecticut. 

Dr. Jennifer H. Mattei of the Sacred Heart University Department of Biology is the featured speaker.

Dr. Mattei’s talk will highlight the progress of projects to restore coastal habitats at Stratford Point, Stratford, and in particular, she will also discuss the significant progress made against coastal erosion.

MRWC is a nonprofit Fairfield organization with the mission to educate the community about the value of watersheds, to advocate for their continued protection, and to engage all people in the fight to protect the environment.

MRWC sponsors the River-Lab Program, a hands-on educational program used in the Fairfield public and parochial schools in grades 3-6 to supplement the science curriculum.

More than 3,000 students and 600 adult volunteers participate in the River-Lab Program annually. They learn about maintaining productivity in a river basin system by studying the Mill River and the estuary where it meets Long Island Sound.
