Salt Water Marsh

Most of us drive by salt marshes thinking they're simply a bog or a swamp. But, in fact, salt marshes are valuable. They're one of the most productive habitats on the planet feeding the creatures of the air and the sea. In this program we meet three people who are passionate about salt marshes. Harry Thurston is an author and naturalist. He's so enthused about salt marshes that he wrote a book chronicling a year in the life of the salt marsh in his backyard. Scientist David Garbary is studying how quickly some salt marshes are disappearing on the eastern seaboard. And Warren Patton is a toymaker who uses his profits to buy and restore marsh land.
