Talk N’ Walk Series: Creek Ecology
How is fly-fishing different from bait-casting? It’s all about the creatures that live in the stream! Join in the collection of macro-invertebrates, test the water quality of Chartiers
Creek and study the watershed and creek ecosystem right in our own backyard. We'll venture into the creek on a hot summer day in search of crayfish and other aquatic critters. It's great fun for the whole family! Proper creek footwear is recommended. Registration is requested for planning purposes and is required to receive the group discount. Details online at www.TheOUtdoorClassroomPA.org.
