Eight artificial cuts were made through the marshlands of the Satilla River Estuary, Georgia (USA) in the early 1900s to improve navigation and facilitate timber transport. Although the cuts are no longer all maintained for their original purposes, their long-term impacts on the flow and quality of water and resulting habitat suitability are still in question today.
A presentation on these issues in 2013 launched a collaborative holistic assessment of the ecological effects of Noyes Cut by researchers at two universities, members of local interest groups, and a multitude of citizen scientists and student volunteers. Join us to learn more!
