Kayak Day Tour - Cosumnes River Preserve


Description: Join REI for a kayaking tour of the Cosumnes River Preserve. Located between Sacramento and Stockton before the river enters the Delta and flows to the Pacific Ocean. The free-flowing nature of the river allows frequent and regular winter and spring overbank flooding that fosters the growth of native vegetation and the wildlife dependent on those habitats. More than 250 bird species, more than 40 fish species, and some 230 plant species have been identified on the Preserve. We will paddle up to 4 miles throughout the scenic fingers of the river in search of the abundant wildlife. No prior kayaking experience is required.
