Water Wiser Kids

July 14: Discover underwater world of Cherry Creek

SEE EVENT INFORMATION BELOW

 

Snorkeling is a great way to come face-to-face with a new and different world: the underwater world of a creek bed. Brodhead Watershed Association will offer the opportunity to snorkel in Cherry Creek on Sunday, July 14, 2019.

 

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., school-age children and their families are invited to learn firsthand about life in Cherry Creek with Brittney Coleman of Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center. The event is free, and equipment is provided. Reservations are required.

Learn about the critters that call this creek home. Find out where the creek water comes from, where it goes, and what happens to it along the way.

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.
