Changes in cove beaches and the channel Carpenter Creek drains into have been found since the culvert removals. The main channel has moved from just off Arness Beach north and now running along the beach on the north side of the cove, before turning to the center of the cove. A new sand spit has extended from the north end of Arness Beach. Details of our findings were discussed by our Program Director, Melissa Fleming, during our 2020 fall webinar event and silent auction. Click here to view Melissa's presentation on Beach Profiling.
