 Marshes are periodically saturated, flooded, or ponded with water and characterized by herbaceous (non-woody) vegetation adapted to wet soil conditions. This tag is particularly suitable for non-tidal marshes. For tidal marshes, water is often salted and you should have a look at wetland=saltmarsh instead.

How to map

Draw the outline area of the area and tag it with natural=wetland + wetland=marsh.
