1. A Salty Experiment in Habitat Management Marker
Inscription.  The former Salt Evaporation Ponds in front of you have been divided into sections with different levels of saltiness. By studying water conditions, bird use, and prey abundance here, researchers will learn how to create the most opportunities for the greatest number of waterbirds.

This experiment uses the historic salt-making process of moving sea water through a series of evaporation ponds to slowly increase the saltiness of the water.
