The State of Rhode Island has been constructing artificial underwater reefs out of debris from the demolition of the Jamestown Bridge. Ocean Opportunity has completed a short educational video suited for regional educators to provide students with a glimpse of this critical work taking place right in their backyard. The video is available here: http://astore.amazon.com/michaellombardi-20/detail/B003CFB95U.
A project website has also been created in a Blog format to provide near real-time information as fieldwork continues throughout 2010, as well as background information on the project. Stay tuned for updates: http://jamestownreefs.blogspot.com.
