Salt Marshes of the Cape
May 14, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The second lecture in a series of three by naturalists from Long Pasture, the base of Mass Audubon’s mid-Cape operations.
In this illustrated presentation, Ian Ives, sanctuary director, will talk about salt marsh ecology. Salt marshes are one of the most biologically rich communities in North America and are nurseries for many of the fish and shellfish Cape Codders rely so much upon. Salt marshes are also invaluable for their pollution prevention and storm and flood reduction. With increasing coastal development, many of Cape Cod’s salt marshes have become degraded. Learn more about these rich habitats, the creatures within them and how to help protect them.
This program is appropriate for teens and adults. No registration necessary.
The final lecture in the series is “Coastal Waterbirds,” by Chris Walz on Saturday, June 11 at 2 PM
Location: Hermann Foundation Meeting Room
