Leaf Pack Exploration
Learn stream ecology with the Director of our Watershed Protection Program as we focus on understanding food webs, invasive species, and how terrestrial and aquatic habitats are linked. Explore the stream for bugs, and investigate “leaf packs”. Wear shoes that can go in the water! Attend either event.
This event is Watersheds (Waterdrop Icon), Healthy Habitat (Leaf Icon).
