Outdoor adventure for kids: Turn over logs, discover new worlds

Part of the Water Wiser Kids series

Saturday, September 15, 2018 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Brodhead Watershed Association

What lives under fallen logs? Why? And how does it survive? On Saturday, Sept. 15, children will have the opportunity to explore Seven Pines Natural Area in Cresco, Pa., to answer these questions. Brodhead Watershed Association will host the event, part of the Water Wiser Kids series.

Turn over a log and you’ll always find something interesting. Earthworms or ant eggs, beetles or mushrooms, or one of the beautiful treasures of the Poconos: a salamander. The Pocono area boasts one of the greatest diversities of salamanders on Earth.

Participants will explore Seven Pines and walk an easy trail into Ice Lake Natural Area, turning over rocks and logs along the path in hopes of finding natural treasures. What will you find?

Join Darryl and Jackie Speicher of Pocono Avian Research Center for “What’s Under That Log?” – an outdoor exploration event for children and their families.

WHEN: 5 to 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15

WHERE: Seven Pines Natural Area/ Ice Lake Natural Area in Cresco

NOTE: Wear sturdy shoes and dress to be outside. If you wish, bring a picnic supper to enjoy before or after the program.
