Pfeiffer Nature Center Creek Walk at Eshelman

Have you ever wondered who lives in creeks and streams? Kids from 5 to 75 are invited to join stream ecologist Ted Georgian for an evening walk in Coon Branch at the Pfeiffer Nature Center’s Eshelman Property.

You will meet mayflies, stoneflies, and see the silk nets used by caddisflies to capture their food.  You will also learn how to give a stream a health checkup. Bring boots or water shoes or ratty sneakers and bug spray.  To add to the outdoor fun, we will share in the making of s’mores following the program.
