CWC To Hold Family ‘Creek Caper’ Saturday

The Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy will hold a “Creek Caper” family event on Saturday at their Ball Creek Preserve on Old Bridge Road in Stow. Conservationists will explain what kinds of creatures depend on clean creeks and streams. Participants will then be able to explore in the creek to find specimens for identification.

Participants should dress for the weather and be prepared to get wet in the creek. Water shoes or waterproof boots are suggested. For directions to the preserve, visit or call the CWC at 664-2166.

Registration is requested but not required. To register, call the CWC or send an email to with your name, email and phone number, so that you may be notified in the event of cancellation due to foul weather.
