Brookwood Elementary School Enjoys Creek Kid at Tannehill April 18-19, 2013

Sport Fish Restoration


Jerry Moss explains the water cycle at the Bubbling Springs.


Because a spring is groundwater becoming surface water, it is cooler than the air during Brookwood's visit.  Students are cautious.

Watershed - an area of land that drains water into a stream or other water body.

Students experience a watershed using a train.

Largemouth bass
are visible from the bridge.

A broad-headed skink basks in the sun at the Grist Mill trough, teaching Creek Kids that the health of a watershed is important to terrestrial animals in addition to aquatic species.

Brookwood students look for snails and mussels in the Grist Mill trough.


Students are excited to catch aquatic insects and other macroinvertebrates while spashing around the creeks of Tannehill.

Jerry Moss explains the proper technique when collecting macroinvertebrates from under the rocks.

Brookwood students learn the importance of aquatic diversity while identifying macroinvertebrates with the help of these viewing scopes.

Thanks for the great fun!
