Forsyth Creek Week March 16-23, 2013

Posted on 2/25/2013 by Jazmine Kilpatrick

Forsyth Creek Week March 16-23, 2013

Forsyth Creek Week is a full week of fun, educational and hands-on opportunities to discover, explore, and help our local waterways.

Forsyth County Parks and Recreation will be participating in Forsyth Creek Week. Forsyth County residents can participate in kayak fishing demonstrations, creek crawls, creek education programs, and Audubon bird walks at Tanglewood Park.

Creek Week’s goal is to connect Forsyth County residents with our local waterways through a variety of activities. This week-long observance will provide opportunities for them to discover and explore local streams through educational programs, recreational activities, and a volunteer service project. The objective of all of these opportunities is to help residents learn more about their own connections and impacts on our local waterways. To learn more about creek week and other activities taking place throughout Forsyth County, please visit the Forsyth Creek Week Website.
