Today we looked at the Pete the Paddlefish sculpture to get ideas about what kind of trash is especially bad for the water and to see how the rain water in storm drains and the trash going in it actually gets to the river. Then we walked to the creek behind the Y and explored to see what we could find. We had all kinds of nets and magnifying tools borrowed from the Missouri Department of Conservation’s “Wetlands” educational trunk. Thank you for this great teaching tool!
