My guest is Jasmin Segura, Baykeeper’s Bay Tours Coordinator since 2014, discussing the upcoming tour season, which will begin with an Earth Day paddle and cleanup on Indian Island with the Wiyot Tribe and Coast Seafoods Company. Most of our Humboldt Bay tours are private charter tours aboard the Madaket, and are coordinated with various partner organizations to provide opportunities for underserved groups to get out on the water at no cost, with support from the California Coastal Conservancy. Participants include English Express ESL students and their families, the City of Eureka’s Camp Cooper summer youth day camp, at-risk teens, the Humboldt County library’s Summer Reading Program, and the Studio and Canvas + Clay Gallery.
