Educators of all kinds are invited to join us for a Creek Freaks Training Workshop. Designed for children ages 10-14, our Creek Freaks curriculum and program allows children and educators to discover science in a fun new way. This Creek Freaks program is an interactive hands-on curriculum that engages kids in outdoor adventure and learning.
Students become empowered as local stream experts and are encouraged to continue advocating for, and working to improve, water quality. Creek Freaks is a great fit for afterschool programs, summer camps, nature center staff, Izaak Walton League members, youth organizations, naturalists, and enthusiastic classroom teachers.
