About this site

Scarborough Marsh Wildlife Management Area is a 3,200-acre saltwater marsh in southern Maine. It is the state's largest salt marsh. This is an Eastern View.  

Photos taken at this site contribute to a time lapse video that serves as baseline data, and allows for close observation, measurement, and analysis of long-term climate change trends.  

Salt marshes filter both the merging fresh water and sea water and provide food and shelter for numerous species of birds, fish, mammals, and shellfish. Marshes also act as Carbon Sinks capturing and storing harmful greenhouse gases. Learn More
