There are entire unique ecosystems that thrive under rocks in our streams. In this family-friendly event, we will flip over rocks to explore the aquatic creatures that make their homes in these out-of-sight places. Bring shoes/clothes that can get wet since we will be stomping around in the creek!
Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on this beautiful preserve with your family for after the event!
