Description
Join the MSI crew for a 5 hour program exploring Redwood Creek and the salt marshes that surround it by canoe. Your group will spend a day as scientists, discovering the wetland ecosystem and discussing their own roles within it. No prior experience with canoeing is necessary, since students will learn proper paddling techniques and safety rules before heading out on the water. Once launched, students will paddle while making observations about the local wildlife they see and discuss human’s impact on this important habitat.
