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!

Today we visited the spillway. It was raining very hard at first, so we didn't have much company, but luckily the weather cleared up. At the spillway you can feed some very large carp -- the water is thick with them and they compete for the bread. It was very entertaining.
