Join us for a fun-filled day of science-based stream activ­i­ties on Sat­ur­day, April 27, 2019 and become a Stream Explorer! This year’s event is designed for kids in grades 3 through 7 who live in the towns of Shan­daken, Wood­stock, Olive and Hur­ley. Inves­ti­gate stream ecosys­tems, explore the dynam­ics of a stream, hike to a majes­tic water­fall, par­tic­i­pate in excit­ing out­door activ­i­ties, learn from stream edu­ca­tors and water sci­en­tists, and become a pro­tec­tor of our water resources!
