Throughout the kayaking trip, guides from Coastal Expeditions pointed out local birds, bugs and plant life. The students learned all about the saltmarsh ecosystem and why it is important to Charleston and our environment. Pausing in a section of pluff mud to learn more about their surroundings, the interns scooped up sea lettuce and spotted hundreds of snails along the muddy shores!
After kayaking, it was time for a presentation of an environmental assignment in Coastal Expedition’s open-air classroom. The students took turns getting to know each other better and learned about resume and cover letter skills from our teen programs manager, Ashley Zalabak.
