 Fish and Wildlife Seeks Public Comment
on Restoration Plans

As described in the two most recent issues of Narrow River Notes, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service plans to use thin-layer spraying of dredge sediment and other techniques to enhance the resiliency of salt marshes in the John H. Chafee Wildlife Refuge in the lower Narrow River. The agency is inviting public comment on a Draft Environmental Assessment which describes the proposed actions. The Draft Environmental Assessment and other documents are available at the Kettle Pond Visitor Center in Charlestown and on the Wildlife Refuge website. The public comment period ends November 30, 2014.

2014 Kayak Raffle

Sandra and Mark Crevier had the winning ticket in the 2014 NRPA Kayak Raffle drawn at the Annual Meeting on October 2.

And while they seemed pleased with their new Old Town Heron 9XT, their dog Scarlet is reserving judgement.

Many thanks to Jason Considine, who contributed the kayak and paddle for the raffle.
