Water Wiser Kids

Outdoor adventure for kids Sept. 15:
Turn over logs, discover new worlds



Brodhead Watershed Association


What lives under fallen logs? Why? And how does it survive? On Saturday, Sept. 15, children will have the opportunity to explore Seven Pines Natural Area in Cresco, Pa., to answer these questions. Brodhead Watershed Association will host the event, part of the Water Wiser Kids series.

Turn over a log and you’ll always find something interesting. Earthworms or ant eggs, beetles or mushrooms, or one of the beautiful treasures of the Poconos: a salamander. The Pocono area boasts one of the greatest diversities of salamanders on Earth.

Participants will explore Seven Pines and walk an easy trail into Ice Lake Natural Area, turning over rocks and logs along the path in hopes of finding natural treasures. What will you find?

This event is part of the Water Wiser Kids Series sponsored by Brodhead Watershed Association, funded by a Dr. Claus Jordan Endowment Grant from Lehigh Valley Health Network Pocono Foundation.
