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.
