Map of Study Area

The tidal wetlands of Florida's Big Bend dominate the coastal environment in 8 counties from Wakulla southward to Pasco along the Gulf coast. This section of coastline offers a stable, low-energy enviornment resulting in tidal marshes that have remained relatively pristine over time.
