Narrow River saltmarsh boat trip, Narragansett, Rhode Island.

The Narrow River, also known as the Pettaquamscutt River, is located in southern Rhode Island. It is a narrow tidal inlet that opens into the Atlantic Ocean at Narragansett Beach. The watershed area includes a tidal inlet, a salt marsh, an estuary, and a pond, rich in plants, wading birds, and many animal species. We will take a boat ride in 24-foot skiff through these areas. Talks on native American history, geology, salt marsh management, and bird conservation will enrich our trip. Participants must be comfortable getting into and out of small boats. Wear sunscreen or hat, warm jacket, and sturdy shoes with good traction (for boat).
