Log Description

ACE Ballfield 2000, Easement, 15.4 Acres. Owned by the Cliff Island Corporation for Athletics, Conservation and Education (ACE), the ballfield abuts The Bluffs and is used for many community recreational purposes. A freshwater marsh, set between two beaches, hosts many migratory birds on their north-south migration. Photos capture gradual erosion and sea level rise, storm surge, and the effects of the ocean on the wetland complex (such as saltwater intrusion and increased salinity).

About Oceanside Conservation Trust of Casco Bay
