Discover underwater world of Cherry Creek

Part of the Water Wiser Kids series

Sunday, July 14, 2019 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Brodhead Watershed Association

Snorkeling is a great way to come face-to-face with a new and different world: the underwater world of a creek bed. Brodhead Watershed Association will offer the opportunity to snorkel in Cherry Creek on Sunday, July 14.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., school-age children and their families are invited to learn firsthand about life in Cherry Creek with Brittney Coleman of Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center. The event is free, and equipment is provided. Reservations are required.

Learn about the critters that call this creek home. Find out where the creek water comes from, where it goes, and what happens to it along the way.

This event is part of the Water Wiser Kids Series sponsored by Brodhead Watershed Association, funded by a Dr. Claus Jordan Endowment Grant from Lehigh Valley Health Network Pocono Foundation.

IF YOU GO: Snorkeling in Cherry Creek

WHEN: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, July 14, 2019. Note: This program is very weather dependent. If the water is too high or murky, if thunder and lightning are present, or if the water or air temperature is too cold, we may need to postpone/cancel.

WHERE: Cherry Valley. Register for directions.

COST: Free, but registration is required and limited to 25 participants.

The program is intended for elementary-age children, though older children and parents may take part. Kettle Creek will provide sterilized snorkels and masks and a life jacket (which must be worn) to each participant. Participants must bring the following:
• Swimsuit/board shorts, worn under clothing as there are no changing facilities.
• Wading shoes, water shoes, strap-on sandals, or old sneakers — NO flip flops or bare feet.
