You are invited to explore life in local creeks and waterways at this free family event! Peer through our microscopes at pond scum, hold composting worms in your hand, watch bees buzz around their hive and introduce yourself to some rescued ambassador birds. Journey through the storm drain to explore Cruddy Creek, an indoor, interactive creek crawl. Head to the game room to win prizes playing Busy Bees, Lady Bug Power and Flip-In Creek. Get your face painted with creative designs. Build a birdhouse* to create a safe home for local backyard birds.
Experts from Bohart Museum of Entomology, California Master Beekeepers, Gold Country Wildlife Rescue, Placer Mosquito and Vector Control District, Placer County Master Gardeners and the City of Roseville Stormwater Division will be on hand to share their knowledge on pollinators, integrated pest management and proper disposal of household hazardous waste. Come learn how to keep our creeks and streams clean and hopping with life!
*Birdhouse building kit requires materials fee, while supplies last.
