A Volunteer's Handbook for Monitoring New England Salt Marshes
Salt marshes are beautiful coastal landscapes that provide rich habitat to a great diversity of plants, invertebrates, fish, birds, and mammals. They protect shorelines from storm damage by dispersing wave and tide energy, and help purify water by assimilating potential pollutants.
A Volunteer's Handbook for Monitoring New England Salt Marshes was developed as a tool to help local volunteer groups collect and record data on salt marsh health in a consistent and scientifically sound manner.
To order a hardcopy of the handbook, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and mailing address or call the CZM Information Line at (617) 626-1212.
