1. The Salt Marsh Marker
Inscription.  
Salt marshes like the one you are looking at, once lined the entire coast of New York Harbor. Most were filled as the Harbor became an industrial port. However, this remnant marsh teems with the life that results when brackish (salty) water meets fertile soil.

The Liberty State Park Natural Area is the focus of many of the programs given by the Park Interpretive Center located just beyond this marsh.
