Salt Marsh Monitoring
Over time our restored salt marsh has become a vital habitat for many key lagoon species. MDC partners with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and University of Central Florida to regularly monitor plants, soil, marine species and water quality in the marsh. Volunteers are often needed to help with fish, invertebrate, and plant surveys using equipment such as seine nets, fyke nets, and quadrats.
Contact Tess Sailor-Tynes at [email protected] for more information on salt marsh monitoring.
