Yesterday we went upstream on Woodcock Creek to meet up with Jay Gerber of the PA Department of Environmental Protection. He showed us how to electroshock fish. He would lead the pack with all of us
following with nets.
As Jay went fish would be stunned and we would scoop em up. we ended up with 13 different species including but not limited to: yellow bullhead, several species of darters, mottled sculpins, and creek chubs.

To paraphrase Captain Renault at Rick's Cafe, "I'm shocked, shocked to find that there's more wading in the creek going on here!" Seriously, thanks for the blog explanations of the photos, and thanks for all of the photos. Looks like everyone is having a great time, and learning a lot too, even if you also experienced the upstream side of the hydrologic cycle during the garden tour. And thanks to the PA DEP and PA DCNR staff for lending their expertise.
