Green Harbor River in Marshfield coming back to life
With renewed salt-water cleansing, waterway is coming back to life
Laurie Bianchi remembers the Green Harbor River in Marshfield as it was in the 1960s, the river’s last decade of relative health before newer, more restrictive tide gates were installed where the river meets the harbor. The result was a habitat increasingly hostile to marine life. In the last two years, though, and since last summer in particular, the river has been slowly coming back to life.
