The Neponset Estuary is an Area of Critical Environmental Concern and needs to remain protected.
During the course of this study, we surveyed trout at over 60 sites, assessed 113 culverts, and engaged 54 volunteers in over 1000 volunteer hours!
Our October sampling event was a dry one, with no large rain events happening in the 72 hours prior.
