2019 Estuarine Ecology: South Slough by Kayak

Instructors: Marty Giles and Joe Metzler
Date: Sunday, May 19, 2019
Location: Meet in Charleston, OR
Tuition: $165

South Slough in Charleston marks the southern end of a 4.5 mile estuary that mingles salt water from Coos Bay with fresh water. In 1974, South Slough became the first estuarine research reserve in the national system. Shorebirds and waterfowl feed in its crustacean-rich mud flats. During our 6-mile round-trip paddle, we’ll learn about the ecological importance of estuaries for both humans and animals as water filtration systems, food sources and vegetative erosion prevention. Along the way, we’ll observe bird activity in the Slough and perhaps even glimpse otters and beavers. When we reach the SSNRR trails area, we will embark on a short hike to explore plants and birds. Then we’ll catch the outgoing tide and paddle back down to the Charleston dock.
