Pickering Brook, Greenland, NH

The 40 acre Pickering Brook salt marsh was one many marshes on the Atlantic Coast that was ditched and drained in the 1930’s in an attempt to control mosquitoes. What resulted was the loss of semi-permanent open water on the marsh surface, critical for black ducks, wading birds, shorebirds, and fish.

Awcomin Salt Marsh, Rye, NH

In the 1940's and 60's Rye Harbor, Rye, NH was dredged during harbor maintenance operations. The created dredge spoil was dumped onto 25 acres of the adjacent Awcomin salt marsh.

Little River Salt Marsh North Hampton, New Hampshire

This project, located off route 1A in North Hampton, involved numerous partners including the NH Coastal Program, the National Resources Conservation Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Audubon Society of NH and the towns of Hampton and North Hampton. This 107-acre salt marsh has a long history of disturbance and alteration dating back to the 17th century when it was used by colonists as livestock forage.
