New Creek Freak Workshops

Creek Freak Workshops

Creek Freaks workshops are a fun and effective way for you to teach science and ecology using streams as living classrooms. Workshops are typically two days and offer hands-on lessons – yes, you will get in the water! Two new workshops have been added to the schedule, or you can request a workshop in your own community!

Creek Freaks Training: Whitewater, CA
This two-day workshop with local teachers will explore the macroinvertebrates and water quality of Whitewater River outside of Palm Springs. Register for this workshop.

Creek Freaks Meets Summer Camp: Iowa and Nebraska
Stream exploration is a great way to engage kids at summer camp. We are hosting two trainings designed for summer camp counselors and camp leaders:

  • Nebraska: April 18-19, Ashland, Nebraska
  • Iowa: May 2-3, Boone, Iowa

These summer camp workshops are grant funded by EPA. Training is limited to 20 camp staff – and both workshops are filling up fast!

If you would like to attend either summer camp workshop or would like to help out with the trainings, contact IWLA Save Our Streams Coordinator Samantha Roth at or (301) 548-0150 x222. You can also contact her directly about setting up your own Creek Freaks training event.
