NATIVE AMERICANS USE SALT MARSH
-Salt marshes are coastal wetlands that are flooded and drained by salt water brought in by the tides.
THE SALT MARSH
Since 1997, Save The Bay has facilitated community-based restoration projects by working with towns, cities, and other partners to remove fill and tidal restrictions, and support native species.
Human uses of the salt marshes have changed over time. The recorded history of Hampton salt marshes dates back to the mid-1600s, when early settlers were attracted by the bountiful plant and animal life.
Summer camp refuse heaps have been found to contain oysters, quahogs, soft shell clams, mussels, scallops, and surf clams. Salt marsh grass was used to feed and provide bedding for animals and to top the haystacks.
Saving The Salt Marshes
The first step for the Conservation Commission is to find out who owns the land around the salt marsh whether it is privately owned, or town- or state-owned land. When they find out who owns what, the commission starts making plans to restore the destruction that has already taken place.
HOW WE USE SALT MARSH
In an era of increasing extreme weather events, our salt marshes provide essential protection from flooding, storm surges, and sea level rise.
HOW WE CAN PROTECT THE SALT MARSH
-They are marshy because the soil may be composed of deep mud and peat.
Fiddler crab is 1.5 inches wide and 1.0 inches long.Fiddler crabs play a vital role in salt-marsh ecology because their feeding and burrowing helps keep marshes clean and helps them to grow.
There were opportunities to use the marsh for many resources. The farmers would begin harvesting in August, and dig a hole a foot deep where they would cut salt meadow hay and later, leave it to dry for a couple of days on staddles. (The staddles were a framework of posts that stood higher than the marsh. The purpose of the staddles was to keep the hay dry when the tide came in.)
