MSU’s New Jersey Center for Science and Technology (NJCWST) coordinates the NAACC efforts in the State of New Jersey and offers training to State wildlife officials and regional environmental organizations on how to perform field surveys and data submission.
NJCWST’s Assistant Director, Dr. David Hsu, represented the State of New Jersey at the Northeastern Transportation and Wildlife Conference, discussing the NAACC assessment results and on how the collected data are being used to improve aquatic and terrestrial habitat connectivity in New Jersey. The presentation included updates from
- Isabelle Stinnette for the NY-NJ Harbor & Estuary Program
- Jim Vasslides for the Barnegat Bay Partnership
- Kristi MacDonald for the Raritan Headwaters Association
- Gretchen Fowles for the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife
Dr. Hsu also led a fielding training workshop for conference attendees who are interested in assessing the habitat conditions at road-stream crossings.
