Boots, Critters, and Maps! Saturday, April 19 10 AM to 12 PM

Is the water in the Rivanna River clean enough?  What sort of creatures live in the water?  Come join the Lewis and Clark Exploratory Center at Darden Towe Park to answer these questions from 10 AM to 12 PM.  All ages welcome!  You'll scoop up macroinvertibrate creatures, test the water in the Rivanna River and its tributary, Trevillian Creek, and troop around in the mud with our nets and boots.  Afterwards you can make your own river map to remember what you've discovered.  Mapping is a Lewis and Clark skill for everyone to learn!

Meet us at 10 am on the lower terrace of the new Lewis and Clark building, or come after 10 and follow our signs down to the river.  To get to the building, take a left within Darden Towe Park, and follow the road up the hill and down to our new building.  We'll have signs to guide you at the park entrance too.  See you on the river!  You can call 434-996-7282 if you need more directions.
