BIOLUMINESCENT TOUR (all ages) ******* only if comb jellies are present in large no.
Thursday August 10th at 6:45 pm
In the summer bioluminescent comb jellies (non stinging / not-true jelly fish) populate the warm coastal waters of the Block Island Sound, including the Great Salt Pond. On dark summer nights these invertebrates may be ‘seen’ when agitated in the water. Folks of all ages are enchanted by the glow emitted by these organisms so bring the whole family. Dress appropriately (layers); headlamp, flashlight, or glow stick suggested, bug spray – can’t hurt.
Reservations required | Basic kayaking required |Space limited.

Pond and Beyond will be once again helping at this event. 6 volunteer kayakers needed along race course to (1) help keep swimmers on course (2) be there in case swimmers need assistance.
Volunteers will receive race t-shirt and a free kayak rental. THANKS!! The CGPS is the main organization keeping the pond clean for swimming!!
This program is directed at semi-experienced tweens and teens. The group will kayak to explore the pond during the morning hours. Participants must be ready and willing to kayak, launch kayaks, and pack up own equipment. Team Effort. The main focus of the day is fun! Kayak, hike, snorkel, beachcombing and I will sneak in ecology lessons.
