Great Marsh

Salt marshes exist at the boundary of land and sea. The plants that inhabit the marsh must be able to tolerate being periodically inundated with salt water, which is fatal to most other plants. Marsh plants, which have adapted to these stressful conditions, are incredibly productive and unique. Join us in an exploration of the largest salt marsh in New England. This easy, muddy hike will feature salt marsh plants such as cordgrass (Spartina), arrowgrass (Triglochin), fleabane, (Pluchea), seepweed (Suaeda), and sea asparagus (Salicornia).
