Estuaries - Who Lives Here?
What is an estuary? An estuary is a place where the fresh waster of a river and the salt water of the ocean meet. If you are on a bay, in a marshy channel or slough, or in the tidal mouth of a river, you are in an estuary. So what types of creatures live here, and why are they important habitats? Join Wildlife Biologist Nancy Hoffman for a late-morning estuary walk to explore Sitka Marsh. This walk will explore habitats ranging from tidally-influenced marshes to shrub-scrub, sedge-dominated wetlands, and forest wetlands dominated by Sitka spruce. Within these areas you might see a variety of birds, mammals, fish, insects and plants. Please dress for the weather and fr walking on uneven, moist ground. Meet at the end of Tohl Road.
With Nancy's help and expertise, particpants will expand their understanding of who depends on these wetland habitats and their importance to our community.
