Kids’ Day at Baird Creek
GREEN BAY KIDS’ DAY, TUESDAY, JUNE 25th
Baird Creek Preservation Foundation is spending a day doing what we do best…focusing on kids and nature. Join us for a day of fun in the Baird Creek Greenway. Keep checking back for more details!
All events will begin at the Triangle Hill parking lot at the time designated below. Parents are encouraged to attend; these are family events!!! Hike distances are around 1/2 mile.
Bug Hike: 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Fish Hike: 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Bug Hike Details: Join bug expert Mike Draney (UWGB Professor) for a hike through the Prairie ecosystem in Baird Creek to explore what bugs live in the Greenway, what they interact with, the good, the bad, and the fun facts about all the littlest inhabitants of the area.
Fish Hike Details: Join Charlie Frisk, Baird Creek Preservation Foundation (BCPF) Board President. Charlie will lead you to some of the best locations, to find the largest number of fish, in Baird Creek. He will use a large seine to temporarily capture some of the fish (and other aquatic creatures) to take a look at the biodiversity of the creek. This hike is a “kid focused” event, so bring the whole family. We encourage the kids to get in the creek and explore so be prepared for wet, muddy fun!
Remember to dress for the weather, and be prepared to encounter a few hills and unpaved trails.
