Price:  $6 per child. (No charge for adults)

Ages:  Ages 8-10

(A session for  5 - 7 year olds is offered simultaneously. Please register for this separately: Homeschool Adventures: (Ages 5-7) Creek Critters)

Theme:  Join us at Cool Spring Preserve as we get in the water and learn techniques for catching critters that live in Bull Skin Run. We'll identify the critters that we find and learn about the adaptations they have that help them survive!

The program will be science-based and includes exploring, observing, discovering, and reflecting on a specific nature-based theme.

What to wear:

Wear clothing that can get wet. We recommend wearing old sneakers, water shoes, or sandals that strap to the foot. Rain boots can work; however, they will likely fill with water. 

Registration information
