Kids in the Creek invites community to take part

Written by 

out kids creekThe 15th annual Kids in the Creek program for Haywood County eighth-graders will be held Sept.17-19 at the Canton Recreation Park.

Kids in the Creek is Haywood Waterway’s most important education program. It is a hands-on investigation of water quality where students rotate through four stations: fish, benthic (bottom dwelling) insects, water chemistry and the Enviroscape watershed demonstration. Students learn about a variety of methods to evaluate water quality and the ecological interactions that occur within a watershed.

The event will go from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. More than 600 students, teachers and local and regional instructors take part in the one-of-a-kind program in Haywood County. Volunteers will receive a Kids in the Creek T-shirt featuring this year’s original, student-art design, as well as snacks and water.

The public is invited to the event. Bethel Middle School students are scheduled for Monday morning. Canton students will get in the water on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Waynesville Middle School students are scheduled for afternoons on Monday through Wednesday.
