Webinar presented by:

  • Rachel Stevens, Stewardship Coordinator and Wildlife Ecologist with the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
  • With comments from Kevin Lucey from the DES Coastal Program and Sarah Large from FB Environmental

Description: Squeezed between rising seas and landward development, many of New Hampshire’s tidal wetlands are in danger of disappearing. Deciding how to protect them requires the ability to conduct “apples to apples’’ comparisons of marshes across the coastal landscape. The New Hampshire Salt Marsh Plan was designed to meet that need. In this webinar, we reviewed the set of spatial planning tools and management guidance that are the core of the NH Salt Marsh Plan. We also shared a few real world examples of how the Plan has been used to help protect, restore or study salt marshes in NH.
