Heron Today -- Gone Tomorrow . . . or Marsh Madness (I'm Too Salty For My Mud!)
An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic Unit on Coastal Salt Marsh Ecosystems - Appreciating, Protecting, and Preserving The salt marsh is one of the most productive ecosystems in the world. We preserve and protect that which we understand. It is important for students to understand and appreciate the economic, aesthetic, and environmental value of this ecosystem so it will not continue to be destroyed or compromised. A protected salt marsh nurtures its plant and animal life.
