The Izaak Walton League believes every American has the right to know whether the streams in their communities are safe for kids to play in, dogs to splash through, people to fish in, and more. That’s why we created the Clean Water Challenge – to improve awareness of the importance of individual actions in keeping streams healthy. You can help by getting kids out into local streams and teaching them that healthy streams are critical to healthy communities.
Looking for water-focused activities to add to your youth program? Then Creek Freaks is for you!
Our Creek Freaks program provides step-by-step instructions for indoor and outdoor activities that help children explore local streams and teaches them the importance of protecting clean water and wildlife. These activities can be used together for full-day events or individually for daily or weekly courses. The program was designed for youth ages 10-14, but most activities can be adapted for a wider range of ages.
