About this resource

Marshes are productive ecosystems that provide many services for humans, but they are threatened by climate change and rapid sea level rise. How are scientists combating this issue?

This story map and activity for K-12 students, created by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Virginia, explores a collaborative experiment to evaluate a new restoration technique to enhance marsh resiliency. The activity uses images and interactive maps to help students learn about thin-layer sediment placement in marshes.
