SUPER KID FRIENDLY EVENT - SUNDAY STROLLS NATURE HIKE, MARCH 16 departs the back patio (next to Patriot Lake) at 2PM SHARP for a look at macro invertebrates in the waters in the area…

The actual hike will be relatively short (less than 2 miles) – we will visit several places of water – vernal pools, ponds, and spring streams to check out what macro invertebrates (critters we can see without a microscope) we can find.  We will hike to the water areas (includes going through some brush so wear long pants and appropriate shoes) and we will be out for a couple of hours – so bring some water/snacks.  We will be getting our hands wet with pond water – so you might want to bring some anti-bacterial hand cleaner and towels.  Collection trays and handouts will be provided.

If you as an adult/parent have never done this, YOU WILL BE AMAZED!  Bring your kids – I guarantee that you both will be DELIGHTED in all the things we will find.   You will not believe all critters that are in the water.
