On Saturday, Barbara Warren, Executive Director of Salem Sound Coastwatch (SSCW), will conduct a morning walk for persons interested in an up-close view of Good Harbor’s salt marsh. The walk will take place under sunshine, cloudy skies, or light rain – but not stormy weather! We’ll meet in the Good Harbor Beach parking lot in the resident area nearest Thatcher Road at 10 AM. Please wear outdoor clothing and boots if you want to leave the roadway and actually enter the marsh – an experience which, of course, is highly recommended!
There will be much to learn from observing the various species of vegetation growing in the marsh, the creeks, the tidal pools, and the fish and invertebrates feeding in the area. Sites needing restoration will be identified and variances between the lower and upper marsh will be explained by Barbara as she endeavors to answer all of our questions.
We’re hoping that you will be able to join us for our first group foray into Good Harbor’s salt marsh, and that you might even care to become involved in future marsh protection projects! Please join us for a terrific morning outing!
