Several of our Bingo critters start their lives in the water. To find them, put on your boots and your “bug eyes”!
Look for safe access to creeks in public parks. A responsible adult should always be present to alert others to hazards. Even water that looks clean can have bacteria that makes us sick. Wash hands before touching eyes, nose, or mouth. Take extra care with small children.
Consider taking along a trash bag to pick up litter you find. Take care to avoid trampling plants and disturbing the ecosystem. Remember to catch & release any critters, and be gentle when turning over rocks and leaves.
If you go to a public park or waterway, please remember to look for hazards and follow CDC guidelines for protection against Covid-19. Stay safe, learn, and have fun!
