Help Protect the Biodiversity of the Great Marsh! Pepperweed, an invasive species is found at Clark Beach. Over the past several years, AGN has been working with Mass Audubon to remove pepperweed from Clark Beach to minimize its impact on other areas of the Great Marsh. On June 9 and/or 10, join us for an orientation and training about pepperweed, followed by its identification and removal at Clark Beach. For more information contact Cricket Wilbur,

The storage of small non-motorized boats such as prams and kayaks is permitted on Clark Beach in the vicinity of the boardwalk from mid-May to mid-October. Pram/kayak owners must be current members of AGN, register their pram or kayak with AGN, display a current AGN pram sticker, and store their boat on the pram/kayak racks on Clark Beach. Note AGN takes and assumes no responsibility for prams and kayaks stored on Clark Beach. For more information, the pram/kayak policy, and the pram/kayak registration form, click on the link in sidebar at the left.

Vegetation corridors adjacent to shorelines provide valuable social, economic, and environmental benefits to people and wildlife. Shoreline buffers refer to the forested or vegetated strips of land that border lakes, rivers, streams, wetlands, and ponds. These strips of ground covers, shrubs and trees help protect water quality, aquatic ecosystems, fish and wildlife, and lessen the impacts of flooding. The canopy created by trees, shrubs, and herbaceous vegetation moderates the impact of heavy rains, shades the shoreline to keep water temperatures cooler, produces organic matter and woody debris essential to shallow-water ecology, and provides food and shelter for wildlife. The vegetation also helps to decrease flood hazards by increasing the soils ability to absorb water. Root systems give soil structure, hold soil in place, direct rainfall down into the soil instead of over the soil, and can extract nutrients and contaminates from soil. Maintenance and restoration of shoreline vegetation allows native plants to fill in the shore-land zone increasing biodiversity and wildlife habitat.
