Salt Marsh Ecology

Mark your calendars!  Ian Ives, director of Mass Audubon Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, will discuss Salt Marsh Ecology here at the main library on Saturday, October 1 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm.  This one-hour talk is appropriate for teens and adults and will be accompanied by slides.

Salt Marshes are some of the most biologically rich communities in the world since they serve as nurseries for many species of fish and shellfish.  With increasing coastal development, many of Cape Cod’s salt marshes have become degraded, something that affects both animals & humans.  Learn more about these rich habitats, the creatures within them and how they protect us from flooding and storm events.

This talk is free, thanks to generous support from the Trustees of the Falmouth Public Library.  No registration is necessary.  For further information, contact the reference department at Falmouth Public Library at 508-457-2555x 6 or email
