Fall in Love with Your Stream Event Recap!

Posted on: February 6th, 2018 by Samantha Kahl

On Fri­day (2/2), we held our first-ever “Fall in Love with Your Stream” event at local-favorite Bite Me Bak­ery, locat­ed in Phoeni­cia. It went off with­out a hitch, with so many won­der­ful mem­bers of the com­mu­ni­ty com­ing in and shar­ing their love for our streams!

Our local com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers were excel­lent com­pa­ny as they shared their sto­ries and mem­o­ries of the water­shed. From grow­ing up on the Eso­pus Creek, to fish­ing the Lit­tle Beaver Kill today, not only did we teach them a few things, we got a les­son or two from them as well. Many of our event par­tic­i­pants shared with us his­tor­i­cal aspects of the Watershed’s land changes and stream ecosys­tems as they rem­i­nisced through aer­i­al images from 1972. Oth­ers shared with us their favorite fish­ing spots and dis­cussed the types of fish they have caught.

The AWSMP staff pro­vid­ed maps and free Eso­pus Creek Cup­cakes for the event, as well as the Love Your Stream dat­ing game and the chance to “Guess that Creek!” where par­tic­i­pants won a prize such as the “Eso­pus Creek” euro stick­er or a Trout squishy if they succeeded!


Over­all, the AWSMP staff had a blast with every­one who came out to Phoeni­cia with us on Fri­day, and we hope you all did too. Thank you to those who par­tic­i­pat­ed, and to Bite Me Bak­ery for not only cre­at­ing the incred­i­ble cup­cakes, but for pro­vid­ing us a space at which to hold our event.


If you didn’t get a chance to come down on Fri­day, don’t fret! We’ll be pro­vid­ing more events and pro­grams very soon. Check back for updates, and don’t for­get about our social media sites for more info and pictures!
