Ninigret Pond Ecotour
July 15, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Come explore beautiful Ninigret Pond in Charlestown on this relaxing and educational trip. We’ll take you through a variety of coastal habitats including salt marsh, sand flats and eelgrass beds which are home to dozens of species of plants, birds, fish and invertebrates. Following a short introduction to the geology and natural history of this 1700-acre pond, we will set out in one of our stable single or double kayaks for a few hours of gentle paddling and exploration.
Ninigret Pond is one of the premiere saltwater ponds of southern Rhode Island. It is uncrowded and in many ways still one of Rhode Island’s undiscovered gems. No previous experience required.
