Enter the world of fish, water insects and amphibians! We’ll explore our very own Balch Creek to scout for aquatic animals like frogs, crawfish, newts and salamanders. Search out insects in our stream and look under rocks to find tons of camouflaged creatures. Use a microscope to discover invisible animals living in a single drop of water. Plus, dip your toes in the cool waters of the creek to beat the summer heat!
