Volunteers will place logs made out of rolled coconut fiber, or coir logs, to shrink expanding tidal pools and restore historic salt marsh for habitat.

This work will help conserve the longevity of the Alley Creek salt marsh for birds, crabs, mussels, and other wildlife that rely on this vibrant ecosystem to live!
