Suitable for ages under 6 with caregivers
Did you ever wonder what lives in a lake besides fish and frogs? Put on your boots and be prepared to explore the waters of Six Mile Waterworks (Rensselaer Lake), from the edge. We will meet in the parking lot at Six Mile Waterworks, have a brief discussion, and then take a short walk to our destination. Bring your curiosity and we will provide nets and magnifiers. This program will meet at Six Mile Waterworks, not at the Discovery Center.
