What are the components of the salt marsh food web and how do they interreact with one another? Why are salt marshes essential to the health of the Atlantic Ocean and Long Island Sound?
Tucked into the heart of an 88-acre wetland preserve bordering the Long Island Sound, this STEM program immerses students in the marine sciences. Along a virtual tour of the tidal salt marsh stream, students encounter a variety of unique animals and plants, learn their roles and unique adaptations. For a culminating activity students take on the identity of an organism in the marsh and its role in the salt marsh food web.
