But nature's timing was appropriate and further fed the momentum of Executive Director Dr. Lenore Tedesco's Plan for the Future.
And what began as an ambitious vision is now quickly taking shape. Demolition and removal of the old walkway was done with the utmost concern for minimal disturbance of the wetlands and so is construction of the new structure which is quickly progressing. "It is imperative that we finish the rebuilding effort before the Osprey return" stated Dr. Tedesco.
"Not only will the new walkway offer unparalleled access to the salt marsh for our visitors to enjoy but it will greatly enhance our research and education capabilities" commented Dr. Tedesco. The Wetlands Institute received a FEMA grant to cover less than a third of the rebuilding cost. The next phase of our Capacity Building Initiative will seek donations with naming rights to offset the balance of the cost. If you would like to find out more about these naming opportunities, please contact Dr. Lenore Tedesco.

"If you value recreating and you value the water resources, recognize our relationship with it and do things to improve it," said Lenore Tedesco, associate professor of geology and director of the Center for Earth and Environmental Science at Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis.
Scientists say there are high levels of toxic blue-green algae alive, well, and growing in Geist Reservoir. They say nutrients like phosphorous and nitrogen in certain lawn fertilizers have contributed to the algae problem.
"We're seeing levels right now that we saw last year by late July and it's only May," said Tedesco. Scientists like Tedesco say the reason why can be found on peoples' lawns and in their lawn fertilizer. "I think we've got a pretty good smoking gun here to say that this is certainly a contributor," she said.
