About the event

Salt marshes provide critical habitats for breeding and foraging birds, fish, and other species, and are one of the most productive ecosystems on Earth. They occupy the space between the ocean and land, serving as a buffer, filtering contaminants from runoff, absorbing flood water, and reducing storm damage from wave energy and erosion. In 2018, the Salt Marsh Working Group (SMWG) was formed to provide a forum for scientists and land managers to coordinate understanding around priority research needs and to collaborate on preserving this natural resource. This spring, the SMWG will be releasing a document prioritizing regional efforts around three driving research questions that have the potential to increase salt marsh resilience along New England coasts

Join Maritime Gloucester and Dr. Katherine Kahl from UMass Amherst's Gloucester Marine Station as she talks about her work with the Salt Marsh Working Group and their coastal resilience efforts. Register here to watch Tuesday's lecture online through Zoom or in-person in Maritime Gloucester's museum gallery.
