What: Riches of NH’s Salt Marshes-Salt Marsh Ecology and Conservation Workshop
When: Thursday October 17, 2013 from 8:30 to 11:30 am
Where: Hugh Gregg Coastal Conservation Center Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, 91 Depot Road, Stratham NH
Join municipal board members, NGO representatives, and resource decision makers from across the watershed for a morning workshop on one of NH’s most limited and valuable habitats – salt marsh. The workshop will begin in the Hugh Gregg Coastal Conservation Center for a short presentation, after which time will be spent outdoors exploring the salt marsh at Sandy Point. The workshop focus will be on how salt marshes work and the services they provide to coastal NH, current conservation concerns, and actions that municipalities and decision makers can take to protect salt marsh services. Fall is the best time to explore NH’s salt marshes and this workshop promises to be an enjoyable educational workshop! The Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is sponsoring this event.
This workshop is no-charge but you must RSVP via email by Oct. 11. To RSVP send your name, municipal board affiliation or organization name, contact information including phone number to Steve at Steve.Miller@wildlife.nh.gov
