6 Youth & School Programs
Creek Critters is an interactive, environmental education program for youth, where we bring the creek to you! The goal of our Creek Critters program is to get kids interested in science and in our precious water resources at a young age.
Creek Critters teaches students what lives in their creek and empowers them to take action to protect their environment! The program is aligned to 4th Grade science standards, but can be adapted for other grades. We also offer an extended, 3-day program. This program includes a day of watershed exploration with our stormwater model, a typical Creek Critters day, and a final day where students create a collaborative art piece to share what they learned.
In the Creek Critters program, we arrange to visit a local school (churches or community groups are also welcome to host if interested) and teach 3-4 classes about local waters and aquatic organisms. The program is open to all schools on a first come, first served basis.
