Salt Pond Safari for Children
July 11, 2015 @ 9:50 am
Each year, our Salt Pond Safaris introduce dozens of kids to the wonders of the salt ponds. Using a 30′ seine net, we will do our best to catch a variety of aquatic creatures to introduce to the children. The kids get hands-on experience with salt pond ecology–plan on them getting wet! Click here to see a Tidal Page article about safaris; click here to experience our interactive online safari without getting wet.
We do require pre-registration for safaris as we can only comfortably accomodate about 15 children.
Safaris meet at the Fish and Wildlife Service parking area at the end of the access road in Ninigret Wildlife Refuge, Charlestown, RI. Take the Ninigret Park exit off of Rt. 1 North, then enter Ninigret Park on the right about 1/4 mile later. Follow the access road all the way to the end. There are toilet facilities at the parking area. We will have a short walk on a flat trail to the pond (Grassy Point), out of sight of the parking lot, and will leave the parking lot at 10 AM. Please be there at least 10 minutes early to check in–we don’t want to miss you!
Safaris generally last about 1.5 hours. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (or call 401-322-3068) for more information and to register.
