The Future of the Great Marsh in Rowley and the North Shore

Tues, April 9, 6:30PM – In-person

David Moon from Mass Audubon North Shore will present how Mass Audubon and other organizations and agencies all around the Great Marsh are working to restore resilience to the salt marsh, which is threatened by sea level rise and other anthropogenic impacts.
Recent advances in low-impact techniques hold great promise for helping the marsh to keep up with sea level rise, and David will share specific designs for how Mass Audubon will use them at Rough Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary in Rowley.
David Moon is Community Science and Coastal Resilience Manager for Mass Audubon North Shore and works from Joppa Flats Education Center in Newburyport, where he helps to restore coastal habitats and leads birding programs. He has been a science teacher, environmental educator, and administrator of nature center programs for 40 years. He taught science at The Putney School in VT, was Executive Director of Ashuelot Valley Environmental Observatory, in Keene, New Hampshire, was Education Director at Stonewall Farm in Keene, and teaches tropical ecology for Franklin Pierce University in Costa Rica.
