Suitable for teens and adults

Did you ever wonder what lives in a lake besides fish and frogs? Come take a closer look at some of the smaller organisms living in the muddy, rocky bottom of Rensselaer Lake. We will meet in the parking lot at Six Mile Waterworks (Rensselaer Lake), have a brief discussion, and then take a short walk to our study area. Bring your curiosity and a pair of boots or shoes you can get wet, and we will provide the nets and magnifiers. This program will meet at Six Mile Waterworks, 135 Fuller Road, Albany, NY 12205, not at the Discovery Center.

Location: Six Mile Waterworks (Rensselaer Lake), 135 Fuller Rd, Albany, NY 12205
