    Margot Walsh of the Jersey Shore Partnership recently had the opportunity to witness the dredging for beach replenishment first hand.

    “On Monday, I went out on a Great Lakes Dredging Company dredger off LBI to learn how sand actually gets to our beaches.  It is a very interesting science and, I must say, requires very experienced and resilient crew that our on duty 24/7.  Included in our group were representatives from the Coastal States Organization, Philly Army Corps of Engineers, NJ Fish and Wildlife, American Shore and Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) and our hosts (way in the back of photo) Bill Hanson from Great Lakes and a reporter from NBC.  I had an on-air news moment but most important the interviewer noted the Partnership’s efforts to increase funding for shore protection.”
