CANOES IN SLOUGHS

grades 6 and up

Discover our local wetland, the wildlife within it, and how humans impact it through Marine Science Institute’s 5 hour Canoes in Sloughs program. This program promises a fun, immersive day on the water, where students can explore their interests in science and the natural world outside of the traditional classroom. Canoes provide unique access through narrow sloughs where students see the thriving marshes that surround our Bay. This program includes hands-on activities, chosen from the options listed below, which are completed on the water. Upon request these activities can be unified by an overarching theme.

 

No prior experience with canoeing is necessary! In addition to studying the unique slough habitat and its creatures, students enjoy learning the basics of boat safety, proper paddling techniques, and safety. Paddling is a fantastic team-building experience that can grow leadership, communication and cooperative skills.
