Take part in Citizens for Conservation's (CFC) Creek Seining Class with seining expert and long-time CFC volunteer, Tom Vanderpoel on August 18.
We will meet at CFC, drive to a local site, and use seining nets to see what is in the water. Will there be frogs, fish, mussels, larvae? Be prepared to get wet and muddy. Please dress according to the weather—layers are best. Water shoes, boots, or shoes are required and must be worn at all times. Bring your own drinking water and use mosquito spray at home.
This class is open to children ages 6 and older. Caregivers are required to attend. No bathrooms are available once we leave CFC.
Class size is limited and will fill quickly, so please register early!
Complete registration forms are due one week prior to the class, on Aug. 11. Please contact Citizens for Conservation immediately if you are unable to attend so another child may participate in the class.
Registration forms can be found at http://www.citizensforconservation.org/youth-education/ or call CFC at 847-382-SAVE (7283) with any questions.
