More at the creek



Part of the field trip activity on Wide Hollow Creek took place at this old cattle bridge. The wooden bridge was used when moving cattle from one area to another. The bridge was of wood because cattle will not walk on metal. Students measured stream flow by dropping oranges into the water and timing their float down the stream.
