Stream Day & Duck Derby
6 September (Friday) Stream Day & Rubber Duck Derby. (Probable Date, not yet finalized)
Traditionally MSWA's Stream Day has been on a Saturday morning in September. This year we are looking at holding the event on a Friday afternoon, in conjunction with local elementary schools.
Stream Day is a small, community fair dedicated to awareness of Middle Spring stream ecology, on-going projects, and general community education. There are arts and crafts projects for kids, aquarium exhibits featuring species from the stream, a "pinball" game, nature art, photos of MSWA in action, information about MSWA, fly-tying demonstrations (probably), and other activities.
Time: Setup at 11 am, events start officially at noon, rubber duck derby at 2pm.
Location: Along the stream behind Shippensburg Borough offices, on Burd St, across from McCune Lumber.
Food will be available for purchase.
The Rubber Duck Derby, an annual MSWA fundraiser, will commence at about 2 pm. Tickets for ducks will be sold by MSWA members in August, and are usually also available the day 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.
