Spring Salt Marsh and Introduction to Nature Journaling
May 17th, 10am
Join us for a guided hike on CBEC’s 510 acre peninsula for this unique opportunity to discover how globally rare salt marsh habitats are special places to birds and other wildlife, and are indispensable to humans, as well. Let’s invite the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of CBEC’s spectacular salt marsh into our curious minds, as we record our experiences of this unique habitat, throughout the seasons, in our personal nature journals. The Spartina grasses are greening, Marsh Elder and Groundsel are leafing out, tiny fish are darting to and fro in the salt pannes—it’s spring in the Salt Marsh! Come share some quiet moments in CBEC’s globally rare habitat, using the tool of nature journaling as an aid to renewal and discovery.” The hike distance is approximately 3/4 mile and terrain is hard packed trail, boardwalk, and sandy beach. Participants are encouraged to dress for weather and bring along a water bottle, small snack, journal with pencil, and binoculars.
Duration is approximately 2 hours. Trips are subject to cancellation due to weather or low enrollment. Check-in and hike begin at the Visitor Center. See the upcoming 2018 schedule to find a topic of interest for you. Check back for udpates on hikes that do not list a topic yet!
