Water Wiser Kids

August 17: Discover underwater world of Cherry Creek



Brodhead Watershed Association invites school-age children and their parents to snorkel Cherry Creek on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2019.


With guidance from an experienced outdoor educator, kids will come face-to-face with a new and different world – the underwater world of a creek bed.

Fish? Yes … but so much more! Snails and worms, turtles and frogs, about a zillion kinds of insects and dozens of plant species, from cattails and grasses to tiny algae. Water striders zoom the surface of still waters. Dragonflies zip around creek banks.

The bottom of Cherry Creek is the whole world to the critters that live there. Put on a facemask and snorkel and come learn about it yourself!

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.




WHEN: 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, 2019

WHERE: Cherry Valley. Register for directions.

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. This is the last creek snorkeling event of 2019.

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

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.
• Towel.
• Sunscreen.


CONTACT: 570-839-1120 or 570-629-2727 or email

This is a series of outdoor experiences designed to help children explore the Brodhead watershed. The hands-on activities are conducted by trained educators and will encourage children and their families to get outdoors more and continue to explore on their own.


The Water Wiser Kids program is hosted by Brodhead Watershed Association and Kettle Creek Environmental Center. The series is supported by a grant from the Dr. Claus Jordan Endowment Grant, part of the Lehigh Valley Health Network Pocono Foundation.
