Kayaking through Coastal Habitats

  • Grades 6th–12th
  • Length: 3.5 hours
  • Type: Field Program

Students explore the biodiversity of Dauphin Island’s coastal habitats by kayak. After safety training, student pairs are guided through the salt marsh, paddling as they practice their observational skills, investigate plants and animals in the area and discuss how scientists study biodiversity. The activity requires the participation of a person with school authority such as a teacher, coach, or administrator.
