Something's Fishy
It's easy to think that fish are boring slimy things in water, but there are some things about fish that no other animals have. We'll talk about the cool characteristics of fish and water conservation, and we'll get a little wet and muddy while looking for minnows in our pond. Bring shoes or boots that can get wet and muddy. For ages 5 & up. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration is required by calling 706-210-4027 or email kbyne@columbiacountyga.gov. Members: free; non-members: $2/child.
