Evening @ Skidaway program examines value of salt marshes

Savannah, Ga. – Georgia’s salt marshes contribute greatly to the coastal environment, from providing a nursery for young marine life to serving as a buffer from storm surges. But is there a way to put a dollar value on a salt marsh?

As the University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography continues its year long 50th anniversary celebration with monthly public science programs, Dr. Bill Savidge will examine the economic value of the “goods and services” that salt marshes provide to the citizens of the Georgia coast.
