The benefits of environmental protection, habitat restoration, and
conservation are experienced as visitors tour Project GreenShores and
learn how the characteristics of oyster reefs and salt marshes
contribute to local water quality and productivity.
Zachary Schang explains the importance of native marsh
grasses such as Smooth Cordgrass (Spartina alternaflora) for habitat
stability and aquatic life at Project GreenShores.
Stone Crabs (above), Pufferfish (below, left) and
a Spider Crab (below, right) are examples of aquatic species that
can be found within the saltmarsh habitat at Project GreenShores.
