Brooke Maslo (SEBS’10)—assistant research professor, Department of Ecology, Evolution and Natural Resources, and wildlife and research specialist, Center for Urban Restoration Ecology—was interviewed earlier this year by Greenable Woodbridge TV.
Maslo—along with the Wildlife Conservation and Management Program, and Water Resources Program within the Cooperative Extension—have been assisting Woodbridge Township in the restoration of the floodplain within the town. This important and complicated project is part of a New Jersey Blue Acres initiative, in which the township acquired 200 properties within the flood zone. Subsequently the groups have been collaborating on the creation and implementation of a floodplain and open space restoration plan, which will increase flood storage capacity, create wildlife habitat, and add passive recreation opportunities such as birding or hiking.
