LBI Foundation Offers Kayak Eco-Tours of Barnegat Bay on Wednesdays, Thursdays

Jul 17, 2019

Learn about the bay by kayaking the bay! The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences offers two-hour-long, family-oriented kayak eco-tours from Ship Bottom out to Bonnet Island every Wednesday and Thursday through Aug. 22.

Tours are available, by appointment, for the following time slots: 7-9 a.m., 9:30–11:30 a.m. and noon-2 p.m.

“Start with an educational overview, then experience, explore and learn about Barnegat Bay’s wetlands with an experienced naturalist,” LBIF explains. “See firsthand the extensive biodiversity the marsh ecosystem has to offer, from nesting ospreys to giant bluntnose stingrays basking in the eelgrass beds.

“This is an invaluable experience that provides a better appreciation of our environment as you immerse yourself in Cedar Bonnet, part of the Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. You may even consider becoming a Barnegat Bay steward.”

Tour fees are $45 per person. Reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance. Call 609-494-1241 to reserve a spot.

The Foundation is located at 120 Long Beach Blvd. in Loveladies. For more information, visit lbifoundation.org or follow LBIF on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. —J.K.-H.
