Salt Marsh, Mudflats, Maritime Forest, Phragmites Stand, Freshwater Marsh
This image is the central portion of this section of the mural, which in reality is about 16 feet wide (ten feet high). There is a Greater Yellowlegs depicted near the bottom which is cut off in this view. You can however see the Blue Heron in the mid-distance. To the middle-right is a large Phragmites (Common Reed) stand, which is an invasive species; interactive boxes within the mural itself allow visitors to discover ways in which the Refuge is dealing with this and other issues.
