Kid’s Pond & Creek Discovery Hike

Join National Park Service Naturalist Jerry Hightower for an exciting adventure around Island Ford Pond and along Falling Branch. We will investigate the branch upstream from the pond, the amazing diversity of organisms living in the pond, and will then follow Falling Branch through the beautiful hardwood forest to the Chattahoochee River. We will use nets, observation trays, and digital microscopes to find the macro-organisms living in the stream and pond.
