Each year on a Saturday in early September Middle Spring Watershed Association holds a Stream Awareness Day community festival to raise awareness about Middle Spring stream and stream ecology issues generally. In 2017 the event will be on September 9. Setup starts about 9 am, with all events running from 10 to noon. The rubber duck derby is held at noon, and takes 20 minutes or so, depending on how the stream is flowing. After prizes from the duck derby are awarded, the event concludes and cleanup occurs.
There will be aquarium exhibits featuring species from the stream, art activities, a "pinball" game, nature art, and other activities. Most activities are free. Also information available from MSWA and other organizations.
The event occurs on the green between the roads at the junction of Middle Spring Rd and Maclays Mills Rd and Stonewall Rd, across the street from 200 Middle Spring Rd.
Food will be available for purchase.
The Rubber Duck Derby, an annual MSWA fundraiser, will commence at about 12 noon. Tickets for ducks will be sold by MSWA members in August, and are usually also available the morning of the event. All proceeds go to benefit MSWA's community service, environmental, and educational programs. A list of prizes and the official rules are available from MSWA members.
