Life in the Reeds: A Chase Garden Creek Kayak Odyssey

The swirling currents of Bass Hole in Chase Garden Creek abound with wildlife. Common Terns dive over sand launces as they boil to the surface, pushed by hungry bluefish below. The orange billed American Oystercatcher prowls along the shoreline searching for a meal among the reeds of long cordgrass that strain the ever pushing tide. This famous area is a feeding ground for fish, birds, mollusks and crustaceans. Learn how these animals have adapted to live in the tidal zone by paddling through their waters with knowledgeable Mass Audubon naturalists. Join this excellent kayak expedition to explore one of Cape Cod's most beautiful marsh systems and see incredible wildlife! This trip is intended for those with previous kayaking experience, yet all experience levels are welcome. Participants will be required to wear life vests. Kayaks, paddles, life vests and safety equipment are provided. Participants may bring their own kayaks but should provide prior notification by calling Long Pasture at 508-362-7475. Registration is required. Register online or call 508-362-7475 to register by phone. See the website for more details.
