Estuaries—the Liquid Lands - Poem by Ann Castaldi

Our coastal bays and coastal wetlands, our estuaries.
They form a system of liquid lands with the highest productivities.
What is land today may tomorrow become open water.
The magic is in the wetlands, the stream flow, and the tidal waves all together.
The freshwater streams delivers nutrients and deposits sediments in the lower bay.
Where the salt water sneaks up with the tidal waves and washes them away.
This dynamic interplay of heterogeneous environments offer something for everyone.
Our estuaries support the national economy through wildlife production, fisheries, or recreational fun.
