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!

Reptiles and Amphibians
Today talked about reptiles and amphibians, like snakes and salamanders. We got to see a Hellbender and a few smaller salamanders like the Northern red, the Redback, a Mudpuppy, and a Red-spotted newt. We also were able to catch two snakes as well, the Northern ringneck and the Eastern milk snake.
