Let's Take a Walk Along The Salt Marsh Nature Center Path...
Below: Restrooms and pamphlets inside, as well as meeting rooms and where they give talks and give presentations and shows.
The first half of this mile-long trail follows the shore of Gerritsen Beach, which empties into Jamaica Bay. From the trail’s boardwalk and viewing platforms you can observe the birdlife for which the park is famous, including the herons, egrets, ducks, and geese that frequent the marsh throughout the year. The trail’s second leg winds through a prairie of tall grass, where you can sometimes spot cottontail rabbits and ring-necked pheasants. Comfort stations and maps are available inside the Salt Marsh Nature Center.
HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE VISIT.
