Water Wonders with Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center at Crystal Lake In-Person

Join Russell Library and our friends from Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center and take a close look at how water shapes and changes the earth, and how humans impact the water cycle. Hands-on activities include chemical water testing (pH & Nitrates), adding pollutants to the 3D Enviroscape, and becoming a drop of water in the water cycle game! This event will take place at Crystal Lake in McCutcheon Park.  


For young people ages 6 and up. Siblings and families welcome!

Registration is required (and will close 24 hours before the event begins).
