Eco-Discovery Camp

Stream Stompers, July 9-13 for AGES 8-10

July 9th – 13th @ 8:30 am to 3:30 pm

Get your hands dirty and your feet wet as we spend the week exploring Great Hollow’s Quaker Brook and its many tributaries. We’ll venture into creek beds, waterfalls, and shaded pools to investigate the creatures that make our streams their home. Along the way we’ll learn about the water cycle, our watershed, the importance of healthy stream ecosystems, and things we can do to protect our local waters.

Topics covered: aquatic ecosystems; plant and animal adaptations; beavers as a keystone species and ecosystem engineer; beaver dam engineering; aquatic macroinvertebrates as biological indicators; natural history of trout; water cycle; watersheds; substrate types; properties of mud.
