Tweetsters who frequent the Edmonds marsh may be interested in reading about a study concerning daylighting Willow Creek, one of two creeks which runs through the marsh. Daylighting Willow Creek will restore a salmon run as well as normal tidal fluctuation to the marsh in the winter.
With the tide gate shut in late October, the marsh is a dry mudflat when there is little or no rainfall, which affects migrating waterfowl. After heavy rains, the marsh fills up with fresh water, which affects the type of vegetation that grows in the marsh.
