Today many people in our community, especially our children, have a disconnect to nature and natural spaces – technology, urbanization and societal pressures have changed the experience and interactions people once had with the outdoors. Much of our society has not participated in the outdoors and although there is renewed interest many don’t know how to do this. Specific efforts will be made to involve the education system from Kindergarten to post-secondary to engage them in project work, classroom and field trip lessons, presentations and research and data collection opportunities.  Getting our youth outside and experiencing the creek will connect them to the world outside!
