Join Brooke Maslo of Rutgers cooperative extension to learn more about an exciting collaboration between ecologists, engineers, and landscape architects on a floodplain restoration and open space design in Woodbridge – an urban community badly impacted by hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy.   Brooke will share the work she has spearheaded on the restoration and transformation of urban residential areas purchased through blue acres funding into natural habitats, with  improved flood storage potential as recreational areas of community open space. This project highlights the benefits of improving storm resiliency in a community and through example showcased how this can be achieved.  Registration required. Register online or by calling 973-538-3500.
