The Beaver State Podcast Episode 103: Snorkeling Oregon Rivers

August 12, 2022

Snorkeling in cold water isn't for the faint of heart, but it's also not that difficult with a few pieces of gear and some knowledge about how to stay safe. Snorkeling Oregon's rivers opens a window on a world very few people see. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists spend a lot of time snorkeling to count fish and document wildlife in rivers, creeks and lakes all over the state, but it can also be a fantastic recreational activity. ODFW's Beth Quillian and Tim Akimoff spent some time snorkeling with biologists and expert snorkelers and divers Pete Baki and Laura Tesler for this episode.
