Wetlands by Boat on Lake Natoma

June 27 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am PDT

Love paddling and want to learn about the natural systems you see as you are on the water?  On June 27th, from 8:30 am to 11 am, join State Parks and FOLFAN for a paddle on Lake Natoma and learn about some of the habit types that are instrumental in maintaining the health and vitality of our waterways.  With guidance from FOLFAN’s Karen Shaffer, a retired aquatic biologist, we will discuss the functions and values of wetlands and riparian zones and how they fit into the larger ecosystem landscapes of Lake Natoma and its surrounding habitats.

This is a casual, slow, nature observation paddle, using your Kayaks, SUPs, and Canoes.

*Basic skills and safety knowledge for the watercraft you bring is required.

*Personal flotation device (life jacket) is required to be worn while on the water.

*Water, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and snacks are recommended.  Feel free to bring cameras, binoculars and other materials to help you explore, if you’re comfortable using them on the water.

*Please arrive early enough to allow enough time to unload, inflate, etc. to start on time.  There will be a brief introduction and discussion prior to setting out.

RSVP is required.  For RSVP, questions, or concerns, please email  Please include your name and the number of people in your party.
