Robert Buchsbaum will be the guest speaker at the third talk in a lecture series hosted by Salem Sound Coastwatch and Abbott Public Library.

Salem Sound Coastwatch will continue its “Underwater in Salem Sound” lecture series at Abbott Public library in Marblehead with an illustrated talk from a marine ecology specialist.

The event, entitled “Salt Marshes under Siege,” will take place on Wednesday March 27 at 7 p.m. with Dr. Robert Buchsbaum discussing the issue of disappearing salt marshes of Salem Sound.
