The Herring River Estuary in Wellfleet and Truro was an unrestricted tidal marsh until 1909 when a dike was constructed across the mouth of the river. The restoration project underway will restore tidal flow in the esturary and result in ecological and social benefits. The video presents the early history of the estuary, what happened following the construction of the dike and the the condition of the river today.
The recently completed three session series was a great success. Thank you to all who attended. We may do this again in the spring.
