New Community Partnerships URI associate professor Laura Meyerson and her Restoration Ecology class were at Rocky Hill school's campus last week. They are evaluating the restoration potential at Potowomut marsh by considering the plan developed by Save the Bay to dig out the old channel in the marsh and other potential restoration approaches. The students are comparing the Potowomut site to the Galilee Marsh Restoration. At the end of the semester, the students will put together a poster that includes recommendations for restoration.
