Event Details

Going Coastal:  Saltern Hike  

UF/IFAS Extension, FloridaSea Grant  

While salt terns compose a small percentage of Tampa Bay’s coastal habitat, they are no less important. Salterns (also called salinas, salt flats, and salt barrens) are open areas where tidal waters pool and salt is concentrated through evaporation. These special spots require a delicate balance of salt water, sand, and a very specific ground elevation in order to thrive.  Join UF/IFAS Extension Sea Grant Agent Libby Carnahan for a walk on the tower boardwalk get an up-close look at Weedon Island’s salt tern restoration site. 

 Suitable for all ages. Throughout the hike we will walk approximately 1-2 miles. It is suggested to wear comfortable walking shoes, dress appropriate for the weather, and bring a water bottle.
