Tidmarsh Farms, a 577 acre private farm situated in historic Plymouth, Massachusetts, combines a large wetlands restoration and conservation project with an operating cranberry bog, a stewardship and technology program and limited low-impact residential living. Beginning in 2010, the restoration project will transform 250 acres of the property from a cranberry farm into a more natural wetland system, allowing this area to serve its ancient function as a flood plain and insuring free passage of water and wildlife from the headwaters of Beaver Dam Brook to the sea. As the restoration progresses, a Living Observatory component will afford the public access to the environment across 3 venues: the outdoor parkland, a Visitor center, and a dynamic website. Our goal is to equip each visitor with tools to better understand relationships between ecological processes, human lifestyle choices and climate change adaptation.
