Our Wonderful Waterways class

The kids took a class the other day at Forest Park!

They spent the morning at Missouri’s first fish hatchery. It is no longer in operation but it’s neat to think about how, so many years ago, fish 🐠 were scooped into milk jugs and transported by train πŸš‚ across the state to various lakes and ponds!


The Missouri Department of Conservation’s Naturalist had brought nets and microscopes for the kids to use..

They spent their time catching little fish and insects.

I like how the class ended by having a sponge race! There is a small stream that has seven small waterfalls. The kids watched, cheered, and even assisted their sponge down the waterway! It was a lot like playing “Pooh Sticks”!
