The Great Marsh Tour

The Great Marsh tour offers visitors to the North Shore an on-the-go way to learn about New England’s largest continuous coastal marsh habitat, the Great Marsh. The tour educates visitors by using a smart phone application to view Quick Response (QR) codes. These QR codes, found on signs throughout the marsh system, link to short informational videos describing the marsh’s environmental and cultural importance.

The QR coded signs are located in the towns of Gloucester, Essex, Ipswich, Rowley, Newburyport, Newbury, Amesbury, and Salisbury. The videos allow visitors to learn more about their natural surroundings through the shared knowledge of experts from state agencies, universities, and organizations including the MA Division of Ecological Restoration, University of New Hampshire, and the Ipswich River Watershed Association. Visitors learn more about topics such as the importance of river herring populations, habitat restoration, clamming, and invasive species.

This project was developed in partnership with MassBays, the Merrimack Valley Planning Commission, and Staddles Production with funding from the Essex National Heritage Commission.

Danger in the Reeds is being produced by Staddles Productions
with the help of Dr Gregg Moore, Peter Phippen and Geoff Walker.

We would all like to express our graditude to our many Kickstarter supporters
without whom this project would not be possible.
