Gerick Bergsma (Marine Photobank)
The Carpinteria Salt Marsh Reserve, part of the University of California Natural Reserve System, is an area of swampy land reserved and preserved for wildlife. It serves as a stopover area for migratory birds, and provides nursery and shelter for many fish species. The reserve protects this important area and provides researchers access to an ecologically important estuary.
