Two projects on St. John and one on St. Croix will get a total of $2.7 million for watershed stabilization and turtle nesting protection projects, Delegate Donna M. Christensen announced. The money comes from NOAA and will be funneled through the St. Croix-based V.I. Resources Conservation & Development Council.

2 projects will address storm water runoff issues on St John, and on St Croix, a trail to East End Bay will be relocated to protect a turtle nesting beach. The East End Marine Park projects calls for moving the trail to East End Bay from its departure point near Point Udall away from the beach because it’s a turtle nesting area. The trail will still take people to the Nature Conservancy’s Isaac’s Bay, but will follow the contours of the land, according to OnePaper.com.
