Slave Canal EcoAdventure on Dimensions
Encore: Slave Canal EcoAdventure
Sunday, June 16
10:00 AM/ ET
The "for more information" url's are a little longer than what we like to put on air (we can only keep them up for so long), so at the end of our Slave Canal EcoAdventure on this week's Dimensions, we directed people back to our page. Directions and trail map: Florida Department of Environmental Protection has a handy PDF for the Wacissa Paddling Trail. One put in is at headwaters of the river, with Goose Pasture ten miles further down. It's a five mile canoe or kayak trip from Goose Pasture to Nutall Rise on the Aucilla. Scroll down in the PDF for advice in finding the entrance to Slave Canal. If you don't find it amongst the braided channels of the lower Wacissa, you won't find your take out at Nutall Rise. For more information on the Aucilla Management area, click here.

Explore Our Coasts
Dr. David Kimbro and Dr. Randall Hughes work to unlock the secrets of the intertidal ecosystems that make up our coasts. In a series of short videos, they explore the inner workings of salt marshes, oyster reefs, and seagrass beds as well as the ways in which we enjoy what they offer us. Join us as we kayak, snorkel, and wade the wet and wild of the Forgotten Coast.
In the Grass, On the Reef is funded by the National Science Foundation.
Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance oyster volunteers needed

The CBA is building bagged shell reefs along Choctawhatchee Bay to fight erosion and promote the growth of an ecosystem that, as we see over and over on this blog, provides many benefits to us. Contact Rachel Gwin at email@example.com for more information.
We just recently did a video on the CBA's oyster recycling program. Watch here to see how local restaurants and volunteers help build healthy coasts along Choctawhatchee Bay.
