Stream Explorers – 4 Day Camp with Trout Unlimited and GARNA
GARNA and Collegiate Peaks Chapter of Trout Unlimited are teaming up for another year of Stream Explorers to connect youth to the river in their backyard. This four class program is open to middle school youth who are rising 5th – 8th graders. Participants will discover the secret lives of creatures that live in the river, perform aquatic behavior experiments, gain experience with fly casting, and learn to tie their own flies.
Class 1: Intro to Stream Conservation. Investigate aquatic invertebrates through experiments in the classroom and surveying in the Arkansas.
Class 2: Research fish including their anatomy, stressors, and habitat.
Class 3: Fly tying, intro to fly rods, and casting activities.
Class 4: Fishing (we will ride a Chaffee Shuttle to our fishing location).
