Orient Beach Park


Fishing, historic, picnicking, playing fields, and swimming.

Skip Blanchard found 42,000 individuals of Bigelow's Glasswort, Salicornia bigelovii, at Orient this fall, 6000 of them at the edge of a proposed ditch. As a result, Ducks Unlimited appears to have abandoned their plan of creating an Open Water Marsh Management area at this location.   (LIBS Newsletter, Winter 2004, Vol. 14, No. 1.)
