The salt marsh defines South Carolina's estuaries, where rivers meet the sea. South Carolina's 350,000 acres of salt marsh provide barriers to storm damage and nursery habitat for key species. Learn more about salt marshes and our ongoing efforts in partnership with North Inlet - Winyah Bay NERR to study and improve their health below.
The salt marsh is a subject of a wide range of research projects across the country. Find here a collection of published research subtopics including living shorelines and restoration, marsh migration and more.
Find resources to help your community understand, protect and benefit from a healthy salt marsh.
