Salt Marsh Program

January 1st, 2003 - January 1st, 2003 | PROJECT

The Salt Marsh Program relies on trained volunteers who work side by side with salt marsh ecologists. We monitor tidally restricted salt marshes on Cape Cod, focusing on four areas of study: salinity, plants, birds and fish. Our goals are to: 1) increase awareness and stewardship of salt marshes through direct study of ecology and funtion; 2) build and maintain a skilled base of volunteer monitors; 3) obtain scientifically useful information on key indicators of salt marsh health; 4) document the need for and effectiveness of tidal restoration.
