For the adventuresome, we'll be getting into the creek to look for mussels and macroinvertebrates and taking water samples.

Participants should dress for being outdoors and/or in the creek. Note, there are no restroom facilities available at the site. Rain alternative: We'll meet at Lost Valley Visitor Center to learn more about the Twin Creeks site.
