(Ages 6 and up) Ijams’ Family Adventure Sundays are great afternoon fun for kids and their parents. Join naturalist Stephen Lyn Bales for our annual Crawdad Fetch and Catch. In the heat of late summer we will explore the cool waters of Toll Creek searching for crawdads under rocks. Plus we’ll look for aquatic invertebrates like dobsonfly, crane fly and caddisfly larvae. We may even find a few fish too. Participants should be prepared to get wet and muddy. Participants must wear closed-toe shoes, old tennis shoes work best.

Meet at the Visitor Center.

Please note: No one under the age of six allowed due to the depth of the creek. Because this program involves walking up Toll Creek, there is no place to observe or watch the program, so there must be at least one participating adult with every group.

The fee for this program is $8 per person. EVERYONE MUST HAVE A TICKET. To register online, visit our Eventbrite page. Ijams members can enter the promotional code CREEK for a $2 discount on program fees.
