Aquatic life in our creeks and rivers go far beyond the fish and crawdads you see with a casual glance. The ecosystem of moving water can be incredibly diverse, depending on water quality and other factors. At Lake James State Park, we are lucky to have a waterway of fantastic biological diversity and this program showcases many of the hidden animals that call Paddys Creek home. Armed with nets, seines and buckets, participants will collect aquatic insects, crustaceans, fish, amphibians and more with Park Ranger Jamie Cameron. This program is suitable for all ages, especially those who are willing to get wet and have a great time. Meet in the parking lot for the Holly Discovery Trail at the Paddys Creek Area at 10 a.m. Wear clothes you dont mind getting wet and water shoes or waders if you have them.
