Duffins Creek Crayfish Craze in Pickering

On July 16, 2015 the first of two Crayfish Crazes this summer for Duffins Creek was held.  The first was in Pickering, within Brock Ridge Community Park on West Duffins Creek.  It was an awesome learning experience for those in attendance as two different species of crayfish were captured and identified! Everyone also enjoyed learning about the different aquatic bugs that call Duffins Creek their home. Children and adults alike were fascinated at how you can tell how healthy a creek is just by the different types of aquatic bugs that live there! We can't wait to see what creatures we find at the next Crayfish Craze in Ajax's Paulynn Park Aug 20, 2015 at 7pm!  Hope to see you there!
