July Activities, On and Off the Water

Here's a rundown of our busy July calendar.

Our river guides led a First Saturday Paddle on July 6th, and two Family Fun Paddles on July 7th and 21st.     

    

Our annual Wolf River Stream Stroll at Bateman Bridge was held on July 13th with lots of kids and parents wading in the water.  We collected some interesting small fish, aquatic insects, and other cool critters, all of which were released back to the river afterwards.

  

Arachnologists Dr. Gail Stratton and Pat Miller came from Oxford, MS, to present a wonderful lecture on spiders to an audience of about 60 people on July 16th.

Ten people attended a Project WET Workshop for local educators on July 23rd.

On July 25th, Ministries in Motion brought a group of 8 enthusiastic teens out to Epping Way lake to give canoeing and kayaking a try with Conservancy staff and volunteer river guides.  Also, a group of 30 Girls Inc. kids joined WRC's Cathy Justis and USFS fisheries biologist Mitzi Cole for a field trip at Epping Way exploring water and aquatic life on July 18th.
