This Faculty-Led Field Program will be led by Dr. Seabird McKeon. Dr. McKeon is a Natural Historian and Biodiversity Scientist. His work focuses on the ecology and systematics of biodiverse marine communities, with particular attention to the role of multi-species mutualisms, facilitation, and diversity-enabled resilience to environmental stressors.

Get ready for a day with penguins! Participants will launch into the cool, clear, water of the Atlantic Ocean for this penguin kayak adventure. They will feel the spray of the saltwater dripping off the end of their paddles as they weave their way through the rocky outcrops around Boulders Beach. As the sun warms their shoulders, a penguin skims the water below, diving and dancing in the waves.

Using stable, easy to paddle, two-person kayaks, participants will explore the crystal waterways of this fascinating penguin colony. An Adventure Works instructor will guide participants to view the penguins waddling over the rocks and gliding through the water. Sea kayaking is safe and easy, and this is a unique interactive experience in a very popular area.  After a day of adventure, enjoy a lunch box at a scenic location.
