Salt Marsh Project Featured on WBUR

Salt Marsh

Boston NPR radio station WBUR has been running a series of reports on Climate Change in Massachusetts. On Wednesday, August 30, Mass Audubon's salt marsh work was profiled in "The North Shore's Salt Marshes Play A Key Environmental Role."

As many people know, the Great Marsh, which extends along the coast from Cape Ann to southern New Hampshire, is vulnerable to rising sea levels and strengthening storms while also serving a critical role as a massive “sponge” to absorb potential floodwaters.

Salt Marsh Science Project Director and Education Coordinator Liz Duff was interviewed by Morning Edition anchor Bob Oakes, who asked great questions that allowed her to describe specific challenges and opportunities, and how Mass Audubon is meeting them.
