New groundwater wells at Marsh Landing

Alicia Wilson visited Sapelo with her student Jacob and with Dontrece's help we installed 5 groundwater wells at Marsh Landing just north of the causeway. Steve has been monitoring plant communities at this site for over 20 years. We hope that, with some data on groundwater over the next couple years, we will be able to hind-cast the hydrological conditions at this site over the past 20 years and that this will help explain the changes that Steve has seen in the plant communities over the years.
