Galilee Salt Marsh

Ditching Improvements

One of the ways to restore the salt marsh south of the Escape Road was to add a network of 4 by 2 foot channels. The purpose of the channels was to bring saltwater into parts of the marsh that were cut off from saltwater flow. The first ditches were dug in 1992 (blue lines) and more were dug in 1998 (red lines). A yellow line surrounds the restored marsh and a green line surrounds the area of the healthy salt marsh.
