Waterway Exploration Training gets kids' feet 'wet' via macroinvertebrate search, enviroscape presentation
Fourteen young people -- and their families -- participated in a Waterway Exploration Training program provided by the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association in partnership with the R.B. Winter State Park.
Students began by taking a guided hike along Rapid Run, followed by a discussion on macroinvertebrates and some stream exploration looking for these important indicator species and wrapping up with a presentation on watersheds and pollution using an EnviroScape model.
The program was spearheaded by Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association intern Danielle Tryon, working with R.B. Winter State Park Outdoor Educator Alexis Weber to plan the schedule, promote the session and help run the presentations.
