Allsopp-Fisher Salt Marsh


    Salt marshes, besides being well-known as storm buffers, are one of the most productive habitats on the face of the earth because of their nutrient supply and the many species of marine and terrestrial life that have their beginnings there. The Allsopp-Fisher tract, two peninsulas just north of the DeGraff Causeway in Mill Neck, is, in addition, the home of Long-billed Marsh Wrens and Diamond-back Terrapins and has, at times, hosted a Mute Swan nest on its cordgrass.
