Creatures from the Balch Lagoon *FULL*

Join us for a week of discovery with a team of budding scientists! With nets and buckets in hand, we will discover the mysterious critters that call Balch Creek their home! We will look for fresh animal tracks that racoons and minks leave behind as they hunt for prey and search for signs of amphibians, crawdads, dragonfly nymphs and more! Throughout the week you’ll learn about the importance of Balch Creek and the nearby pond and what you can do to help all the creatures that call Balch Creek their home!
