Impending sea level rise and the potential for more severe weather, along with the importance of habitat biodiversity, has underscored the need for restoring landscapes in our region altered by humans. On The Point, we discuss several aquatic restoration projects on Cape Cod and how these projects will contribute to coastal resiliency and habitat diversity. 

Guests in the studio are Beth Lambert, aquatic habitat restoration program manager with the Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game; Mike Lach, executive director of the Harwich Conservation Trust; Elizabeth H. Gladfelter, lead coordinator for the Coonamessett River restoration project of the Falmouth Conservation Commission; Katelyn Cadoret, assistant conservation agent in the town of Mashpee;  and Nick Nelson, a fluvial geomorphologist with Inter-Fluve. Amy Vince hosts. 

Amy has worked at WCAI since 2001. After 11 years in the WCAI development department, she shifted gears and became producer for The Point with Mindy Todd. She enjoys the challenges of producing a daily public affairs program and the opportunity to research and learn about the wide variety of topics covered by the program. Before coming to WCAI, Amy spent nearly a decade sailing offshore as a mate on sailing school oceanographic research vessels. She lives in Falmouth with her husband and son.
