Events in Savannah 3/3-3/6/2011

March 2, 2011

Events happening this weekend (3/3 – 3/6) include:

3/5 – 10:00 AM-1:oo PM, Salt Marsh By Land and Sea Kayak Tour, Skidaway Island.

An easy opportunity to kayak the tidal creeks and salt marshes and to learn the fascinating systems, biotic and abiotic, that influence our richly productive marshes. Your Wilderness Southeast Naturalist Guide will enthrall you with tales of this place, from the earliest humans on these shores to the variety of wildlife that lives here. After observing marsh life near shore, and brief paddling instructions, you’ll be gliding over protected waters beginning in open channels and maneuvering into narrow passages between tall marsh grass. You’ll observe the richness and rhythms of estuary life. It’s common for dolphin to surface close to your kayak, and for osprey or bald eagles to soar overhead. We’ll step out to stretch our legs and briefly explore a wild shore. The good news is that waterproof clothing is available. It won’t be a fashion show as it is one size fits all, but if you’re concerned about staying dry this time of year, you’re in good hands. Tour size 4 to 10 people for an intimate, personal experience. Reservations Required. Cost is $55/person and includes kayak and basic instruction. For more information, visit

2/17 – 4/1, “The Spirituality of Place,” Gutstein Gallery, 201 East Broughton Street.

The Spirituality of Place” focuses on internationally acclaimed artists working in a variety of media who explore the sense, spirit and memory of place and reinterpret it poetically through their art.
