Description

See also: Tidal Wetlands, Habitat Restoration

Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve & Morro Bay National Estuary Program present a virtual exchange on "A Comparison of Salt Marshes in Central California Estuaries".

 

Background: Given their shared roles as major estuaries within California’s Central Coast region, Elkhorn Slough and Morro Bay estuary programs are interested in more information exchanges to build their respective capacities and better inform their research, monitoring, restoration, and outreach efforts.

For their second exchange, comparative tidal marsh ecology was chosen as the general theme, with a series of subtopics being prioritized for discussion.

 

Exchange objectives:

  • Enhance the understanding by participants of salt marsh patterns and processes within and between the two estuaries.

  • Strengthen professional networking between ESNERR and MBNEP

  • Explore ideas for joint research questions
