Great Marsh Revitalization Task Force

Friday was the first in-person annual meeting of the Great Marsh Revitalization Task Force in several years. We are garnering a broader interest in the revitalization of the marsh and that is a wonderful thing. We had many presenters at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and many in attendance. Great thanks to Peter Phippen. 

The Great Marsh is the largest continuous stretch of salt marsh in all of New England - ranging from Gloucester to southern New Hampshire. Encompassing more than 20,000 acres of salt marsh, barrier beach, tidal river, estuary, mudflat, and upland islands it is internationally recognized as a bird habitat and extraordinary environmental resource.
