Fish Week

We spend four days in the field teaching kids about the important connection between healthy rivers and fish! Lessons include fish habitat, aquatic macro-invertebrates, bugs and dry flies comparison, and an interactive introduction to fly fishing. We also conduct a riparian walk and map making station to engage kids in understanding the whole riparian ecosystem. Topics incorporate public lands, riparian areas, and environmental stewardship!
