This 2-day, citizen-scientist program teaches conservation to youth ages 11 to 14 through a variety of fun, hands-on activities that encourage youth to get out and explore the world around them.
Held over two consecutive Saturdays, it includes:
Day 1 (June 3):
- Explore the Water: Walk along the stream and lake. You might discover something new along the way!
- Knot Physics: Tie and test common fishing knots.
- Bug Hunt: Search for Macro-invertebrates in the stream. You’ll be amazed what you can find under a rock!
- Art Imitates Life: Learn to tie flies that match what you found on your Bug Hunt.
Day 2 (June 10):
- Go with the Flow: Release your rubber duck to measure key characteristics of streams and lakes
- Fishing with Physics: Learn how to cast a fly and properly fight a fish. Let the rod do the work!
- Scavenger Hunt: Put it all together and have some fun at the same time!
- Choose Your Adventure: Parents/Guardians are invited to join their youth for an afternoon of fishing and learning.
