Habitats are places where plants and animals live, feed, and reproduce. The Casco Bay watershed includes many productive habitat types, including upland forests, riparian areas, salt marshes, seagrass beds, tidal mudflats, and rocky outcrops. Those habitats are home to a diversity of species -- from lobsters and clams to alewife and moose.
