This tidal salt marsh is an example of one of the most amazing ecosystems on earth. A network of brackish water streams provides a nursery for young fish that will eventually move out to inhabit the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

Fiddler crabs and other aquatic life take advantage of rich food sources in the marsh and egrets, herons, ospreys and other birds are often seen as they hunt for fish along the tidal streams.
