Salt Marsh Walk
The dynamic and fascinating salt marsh, our seafood nursery, is among the most productive naturalhabitats on earth. It filters and cleanses, anchors a huge food web, buffers our shores, and shelters many fascinating animals. Georgia’s marshes supported the earliest humans on these shores, and provided clay for their earliest pottery. Alternately submerged beneath salt water and baked under the sun, the plants and animals of this unique wilderness are so specialized that new and amazing adaptations are still being discovered by researchers! Your WiSE guide will lead you and your imagination through this rich habitat.
We offer two ways to discover the drama of life in the mud and salt!. This Salt Marsh Walk is the less expensive option, since you’ll investigate on foot rather than from a kayak. If you have boots or tennis shoes that can get muddy, you’ll want to get hands-on with some of these marsh inhabitants, perhaps even attempting to catch one of the scurrying fiddler crabs. Regardless of your footwear, your guide will ignite your imagination to visualize marsh life both above and below water.
