Freshwater Academy is a week-long camp that gives high school students the opportunity for hands-on experience and fieldwork in Northwestern Pennsylvania's waterways. Students spend their days studying biology and freshwater ecology at a level they can't achieve in the classroom. They will get wet, they will get dirty, and they will love it!

Fresh Water Mussels
Today we went to French Creek looking for fresh water mussels, we found a unique mussel called a three ridge mussel. It's called a three ridge because the shell has three divots in the top of the shell. We also found three other species of mussels.
