The 66 acres of Touisset Marsh are a fine example of salt marsh and bordering upland field and wooded habitat. This walk with Garry Plunkett will be an opportunity to explore and identify plants in several natural communities – a lovely salt marsh and adjacent shrubland, upland meadows, and a coastal woodland. The group will meet in the parking lot of this Audubon Wildlife Refuge.
