Nahant Marsh: Urban Wetland

Nahant Marsh, near the Mississippi River, is an area whose beauty and value is emphasized by the surrounding city. A working railyard lies to the south, filling the air with the rumble and whistles of trains. To the north and east, heavy industry adds a background hum. The whine of travel and commerce is due to Interstate 280 on the west. A place of interwoven life and beauty, Nahant Marsh is an island of wildlife habitat in an urban setting. I have been irresistably drawn back again and again in all seasons and weathers. These photographs are only a small glimpse into the remarkable things I saw there.
