Read about CT NERR, bay’s seaweed woes & major museum remake

“Discovery, Rediscovery and Rebirth” is the theme for the Fall-Winter 2021-2022 issue of Wrack Lines magazine, now available in print and online here.

The lead article package describes the Connecticut Estuarine Research Reserve (CT NERR), a collection of the waters and lands at the lower Connecticut River and the lower Thames River, along with Bluff Point and Haley Farm State Parks, and its expected designation in early 2022.

Additional articles tell the story of researchers’ work to pinpoint the cause of the invasive seaweed problem plaguing Little Narragansett Bay in Stonington, and of the top-to-bottom redesign underway at one of Connecticut’s storied educational institutions, the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History in New Haven.
