Kid's Creek Study

Saturday, August 7, 2021

Creek studies are both educational and fun! Children will be able to safely explore the creek, while searching for and collecting macroinvertebrates and examining them up close. Together as a group we will determine whether or not we think our creek is healthy, based on the quantity and diversity of organisms that we find. Your child will get the experience to think and work like a real scientist! At the end of the program, they will have learned how to properly collect and examine macroinvertebrates, as well as understand the importance of them. Pre-registration is required by August 1st. Ages 6-12; Participants should dress for the weather—sunscreen, hats, etc. Parents are encouraged to bring insect repellent and towels in case children get wet. Proper shoes are required, such as water shoes, or waterproof boots. NO flip flops.
