February 2023 Webinar - When Times Get Tough, Remember the Sea Turtles!

February 16, 2023 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (EST)


Monthly webinars are offered as a benefit of membership. Once each quarter, in March, July, September, and December, the monthly SWS webinar is open for non-members to attend (and at no cost), as well.

The San Jose Island Barge Removal and Restoration project is full of regulatory decisions, agency consultation, and remote location challenges. Join Christine Magers, CWB and Adam Constantin, PWS as they present the permitting and restoration of temporarily impacted dune and wetland barrier island habitat. The project began in 2017 when Hurricane Harvey made landfall near the island causing six barges to break loose from the mooring area in the Lydia Ann Channel. The high winds and waters carried the barges over the island towards the Gulf where they landed on the back side of the dunes in two different areas, five barges in one area and one lone barge in another. A team of marine vessel salvagers, barge owners, land owners, habitat restoration experts, coastal engineers, and environmental scientists joined together to permit, plan, remove, restore, and monitor the project. You won’t want to miss this, the project has everything – helicopters, sea turtles, more barges, and cows! 

Speaker: Christine Magers, CWB
