Aug. 3 Floating Classroom: Students study snakes, sing songs and learn more about the river's resources
More than 50 people participated in the second of the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper's Floating Classroom programs of the summer aboard the Hiawatha Paddleboat near Williamsport, PA.
The theme of the Aug. 3 session was "Snakes & Songs on the Susquehanna." Renowned snake expert Karl Miller, of Liberty, shared important facts about various snake species found throughout our watershed, introducing the students to three live specimens he brought on board. On the lower level, KJ Reimensnyder-Wagner led participants in a variety of water-based songs, sharing a message of conserving our aquatic resources.
Here is a quick glimpse of the sessions provided by our instructors via a quick video followed by a photo gallery from the hour-long session. For more about upcoming Floating Classrooms, click here.
