Let’s explore the creeks and streams around the Gladie Visitor Center!

Event Details

Enjoy 90 minutes of guided Stream Exploration with Joy Hopkins from Lighthouse Guiding and Seven Hills Farm.

A cool forest stream can offer some educational refreshment on a summer day! There are hidden treasures waiting to be discovered underwater and along the banks. Families can enjoy some fun together learning about the unique life of aquatic insects, crustaceans, amphibians and other organisms that may be found in or near the stream.

A naturalist guide will help direct your search and provide information about the findings as well as relevant ecological topics including water quality and care of the ecosystem. This hands-on activity encourages teamwork and a thoughtfulness towards the life we don’t normally see.

The Guide will provide catch buckets, nets, magnifying glasses, and other relevant supplies.
