River Romp

Saturday, August 19, 2017

Discover your river by searching sandbars for fossils, artifacts, and other treasures, and scoop the river for benthic macro invertebrates (cool water bugs). Wear clothes and shoes that can get wet and muddy (no flip-flips please). Nets and other "romping" tools will be provided. Appropriate for ages 8 and up - all children must be accompanied by an adult. This program is free, but registration is required by 4pm on Thursday, August 17. The romp will be canceled if river levels are too high or if there is inclement weather.
