Stream Day &
Rubber Duck Derby
Traditionally MSWA's Stream Day was a casual, family-oriented event held on a Saturday morning in September in the heart of Middle Spring. It featured a rubber duck derby in the stream. In 2019 we did things a bit differently having a formal event with activity stations for elementary school students, on a Friday, downtown near the Shippensburg Borough offices, without a duck derby. There was no Stream Day in 2020 or 2021 due to Covid.
For 2022 we are planning a TWO-DAY Stream Day event -- the best of both models!
Friday, 23 September, in conjunction with SASD elementary schools, we will have activity stations for third grade students. There will be fun educational activities on stream, including aquarium exhibits and a variety of others.
Saturday, 24 September, 10am, we will hold our traditional stream event for families and children of all ages.
There will be educational activities, arts and crafts projects for kids, aquarium exhibits featuring species from the stream, games, photos of MSWA in action, information about MSWA, fly-tying demonstrations (probably), and other activities. The morning will culminate with the Rubber Duck Derby at Noon.
These are TENTATIVE plans. Further details TBA as planning continues.
