Ayers point Acquisistion Opportunity

The Ayers Point parcel (arrow) includes the beginnings of Hyde Creek that meanders through private, state and town-owned tidal marsh before connecting, less than a half mile away, to the mainstream of the internationally recognized Lower Connecticut River estuary. If protected, this tract will allow for the landward migration of tidal marsh as sea level rises, providing critical habitat for migratory and resident bird life and other wetland dependent species. It will add an additional eleven acres to seventy acres in conservation ownership.
