PBS salt marsh documentary

What better place to learn about salt marshes than Georgia! UGAMI had a crew from PBS on site last week shooting footage for a program focused on salt marshes as part of a series called Changing Seas (www.changingseas.tv). The crew went out in the field with GCE-LTER researchers to film them in action at the long-term plots and sampling the vegetation near the flux tower, and they also visited the SALTEX experimental site and got a chance to see our drone survey of Dean Creek. The crew was tested before they came and all involved observed social distancing rules, and the whole thing went off without a hitch. After Sapelo, they headed up to Skidaway for some additional filming. The program is due to air in June.
