Creeks and kids go together! This July, Piedmont Environmental Alliance is partnering with Gateway Nature Preserve to combine a creek stomp with games and activities that are part of PEA’s new educational initiative, “Every Drop Counts.” Adventure through Salem Creek and learn about macroinvertebrates, NC river basins, and common water pollutions, all while getting a little wet and messy!
This free event is ideal for families with children age 6-14. Please wear closed-toed shoes and clothing that can get wet. Email Allison@peanc.org for more information!
Salem Creek has a story to tell! Geologist Jeremy Reiskind will lead us in an eye-opening journey, exploring how the stream erodes, transports, and deposits sands and gravels, and what these materials have to tell us. Meet at the bridge near the Washington Park parking lot, off Broad Street in the 1400 block.
