Creek Keepers


Science students at La Salle High School in Union Gap have an organization called the Ahtanum Creek Keepers. Ahtanum Creek runs through their campus. Each spring these students provide environmental field trips for some of the local elementary and middle schools. These are real hands on (and feet in) creek studies. This year's events took place on nearby Wide Hollow Creek because the Ahtanum was flooding.

That's a cool way to learn science! Wish we had stuff like this when I was a kid.
