Chase Cover salt marsh is a component of the Touisset Marsh Wildlife Refuge, a 66 acre property protected and managed by the Audubon Society of Rhode Island. Located at the terminal end of Chase Cove on the Kickemuit River, it is bounded by managed upland fields and wooded habitat within a rural setting with limited access (via boat and hiking trail). Threats to the unique vegetation communities that comprise this habitat include: habitat shifting and alteration, invasive non-native /alien species, household sewage and urban waste water, housing and urban areas, and recreational activities (RI DEM 2015). The team assessed a time frame with an end period of 2050 to give an appropriate long-term view for making current and near-term management decisions regarding climate impact.
