Get Involved: EVENTS & ACTIVITIES

Creek Critter Event

Saturday, August 20, 2022: 9am - Noon

Locust Grove Nature Center (Creekside at the Sycamore Amphitheater)

Ever wonder what lives in the creek?  Join us for a free family activity identifying the critters frolicking in Cabin John Creek.  

We'll lead teams through an interactive field exercise to catch and identify critters (macroinvertebrates) in the creek.  A stream health report is generated from the Audubon Naturalist Society's CREEK CRITTERS® app, based on the macros that are found.

What do I need?

  • Water shoes / sandals (close toed, you'll wade in the creek)

  • Water bottle & snacks

  • Your lunch for afterward

  • Download the CREEK CRITTERS® App onto your phone (we’ll have a few extra phones for people to use)

 

Friends of Cabin John Creek and Audubon Naturalist Society will provide all necessary equipment.

Attendance is limited to 30, so please sign up in advance!
