The state Coastal Resources Management Council has awarded more than $200,000 to nine habitat restoration projects. The projects aim to protect from the impacts of climate change.
These nine habitat restoration projects span a good stretch of the state, from Napatree Point in Westerly to Quicksand Pond in Little Compton and Blackstone Park in Providence.
The projects would restore fish passages, salt marshes, and barrier beaches. Recipients of the money include the state Department of Environmental Management and nonprofits doing conservation work.
The CRMC’s Coastal and Estuarine Habitat Restoration Trust Fund makes these restoration grants possible. The fund has contributed to more than 300 acres of conservation over the past 12 years.
