Wildlife Makes a Comeback at Marblehead’s Goldthwait Reservation
Five years ago Goldthwait Reservation had all but disappeared. It was dying under the weight of invasive weeds, fresh water infiltration and trash. Not anymore.

It wasn’t that long ago that invasives like phragmites and Japanese knotweed and black locust trees covered much of the marsh. Also,the trench that borders the marsh as well as the inner ditches were blocked by silt, marsh detritus and trash, preventing saltwater from flowing, which the marsh needs to survive. But over the years groups of dedicated volunteers that included Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Marblehead High School students, painstakingly dug out the trenches, cut back then dug up the invasives and brought the 16-acre slice of ecology back to life.

Foxes, egrets, white herons, coyotes, butterflies and bees have all come back to the area since Goldthwait Reservation Trustees launched a reclamation project in 2015.
