Experience the wonders of Maryland's freshwater streams! Learn about some of the strange and marvelous creatures that lurk inches below the surface of the stream in your backyard. Through lectures and a hands-on field expedition, students explore the biological, chemical, and physical characteristics of streams. We'll also learn how streams connect intimately with the land and discuss how humans have had a profound impact on streams, rivers, and one of our most treasured natural resources, the Chesapeake Bay.
