Loudoun Water Stream Walk and Tour

The Children’s Science Center is excited to partner with Loudoun Water again to offer our first ever stream monitoring event!

We are all about #xSTREAMscience this summer because stream health is important.

During the first hour, Loudoun Water will lead you through their Aquiary, a destination for students, teachers, and parents to learn about wetlands, water conservation, and water treatment in Loudoun County.  Children’s Science Center will also guide you through some hands-on activities exploring water pollution and prevention.  In the second hour, you will work alongside trained stream monitors to analyze water samples from Loudoun Water’s stream.  You will utilize Audubon Naturalist Society’s Citizen Science Project, Creek Critters, to identify organisms and generate stream health reports.  The event will end with an optional picnic, to eat alongside the Center’s and Loudoun Water’s staff.
