Have you seen the waves hit the shore and glisten? Ever wonder what it is and what causes it? Where should you go to see it? Join Sam Kaviar from Olympic Kayak Tours to learn about this amazing phenomenon.
Presenter: Sam Kaviar is the founder and owner of the Olympic Kayak Tours. Sam received a bachelor's of science in Animal Behavior and Zoology, and Conservation Biology from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA.
Sam likes to say he got his first kayaking gig primarily for his biologist skills—and his first professional biology gig in part for his kayaking skills, when he went to work for the United States Geological Survey (USGS). Working for USGS, Sam studied salmon habitat recovery primarily in the Nisqually River Delta, as well as in estuaries throughout Washington State. Sam left the USGS to return to Panamá as a Fulbright research student to continue his work with the endangered pygmy sloths of Escudo de Veraguas. Sam returned to Washington State in 2017, when he founded Kayak Nisqually, providing kayak tours in the Nisqually Delta. He operated Kayak Nisqually full-time until moving to the Olympic Peninsula.
