Boston University Marine Program held a series of meetings to present research entitled Oyster Pond: Impacts of Land Use on groundwater, pond water quality, plants and fish.
The Oyster Pond Environmental Trust members and area residents attended. These presentations by the Marine Ecology class members are the result of research projects undertaken to answer stakeholder concerns about the status of the Oyster Pond/Lagoon ecosystem.
