Have fun with water and learn about streams and animals that live in streams through activities designed for children and families. Staff from several agencies and organizations will provide activities and displays, including catching aquatic animals in the stream, seeing live turtles, using an interactive stream model, completing an art project, and learning about fish and pollution in rivers. Young children (4 and up) will be assisted with using nets to catch aquatic animals in the stream near the Devil's Icebox parking lot, and an optional guided hike to Gans Creek will be offered for adults and children 6 years old and up from 10:30 am to noon. Registration is necessary for the Gans Creek hike (call 573-449-7402) but not for attending the event.
