Appropriate for all ages. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. No pets please.
Join a Park Ranger to learn about how the living and non-living things interact in mountain streams. What are all of those bugs and other critters swimming and crawling through the creek? We will catch and identify what type of creature they are and what these species could tell us about water quality. Nets will be provided. Any participants wanting to get into the stream should bring waders or clothes that can get wet and a towel to dry off. Boone Fork Parking Lot is located on the Blue Ridge Parkway; just north of mile marker 300. For more information, please contact us at 828-963-9522 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
