This note is posted on behalf of Eymund.

Eymund is working with Gena Wirth (Public Lab organizer) and Becky Boger of Brooklyn College to plan out some summertime mapping excursions on Jamaica Bay. This series is planned as an exploration of historic wetlands that now exist as "dredged wetlands" and "filled water". The question driving this investigation is about where wetland restoration will be most possible / effective / valuable.
