At the lake. Photo by Lisa Carter.In 2002 and 2003 our critter camps were so sucessful that we decided to run one again in 2004. Instead of the creek, we took children to the lake and let them search for critters in the lake. As with previous camps, samples were collected and then analyzed in a temporary lab setting so the children could examine and learn more about what they had found.
