Sampling Site GCE1 (Eulonia)

Site Description  

Name: Eulonia

Location: Georgia, USA

Description: Transitional salt marsh/upland forest site at the upper reach of the Sapelo River near Eulonia, Georgia. The main marsh area is to the north of the channel where the upland is controlled by DNR. Several small creeks lie within the study area. Residential development is increasing on the upland areas south of the channel. A hydrographic sonde is deployed within this site attached to a private dock to the south of the main channel near the HW-17 bridge. The sonde is accessed from a dock on a private residence off of highway 17. As of late 2017 the property is owned by Linda Hornby. She asks that we notify her by text about an hour before arriving to service the sondes. There is no reason to go to this property other than for sonde work.

Access Information: The marsh can be accessed by car from HW-17 just north of the Sapelo River channel. Sonde access requires private land owner notification. (Ownership: Georgia DNR (river corridor) and private land owner (sonde mooring dock))

Restrictions: Must wear orange vests during hunting season (October-December, contact SINERR at 912-485-2251 for dates of managed hunts)

Vegetation: Vegetation is 3/4 Juncus and 1/4 Spartina alterniflora, and upland area is heavily forested.

Fauna: Littoraria is abundant.
