    • Creek Kids at Tannehill Park


      The Creek Kids Program teaches students in grades four to eight about aquatic environments.

      Students experience an overview of a watershed via a train ride, see the impact of a mill dam on fish passage, and visit the Iron and Steel Museum of Alabama to learn about Alabama’s iron industry. Students manipulate an EnviroScape, an interactive educational model that illustrates how pollution can move into the aquatic environment. Students also wade into a bubbling spring and a creek for a hands-on experience with native fish and invertebrates.
