Biologist Moss explains the need for clean water for both people and wildlife. Mrs. Morrison places a fence on a watershed model. This will keep the cows out of  the creek.

Future biologist? While at the park, students learn more about the fisheries profession. Students get excited when fish are captured.
Recently caught fish were placed in aquaria.
It is neat seeing the fish of Tannehill.

Look closer and you will find some critters on the bottom of the creek.
Students wait their turn to sample fish from a stream at Tannehill State Park.
The green and yellow magnifiers allow students a closer look at their find. Cool! A horn snail.
Thanks for the great fun!
