Creek Crawl at Sycamore Shoals State Park

Come along with a group of kids as they discover that the contents of our ecosystem are not so simple.

Hi friends… welcome to the Wild Side… I’m Steve Hall

There was a time when kids living in the country could find fun in what most of us would think of as very simple places… like a creek.

These days… with so much residential and commercial development… it seems there is a lot less “country” to live in… making “simple places” harder to find.

But there are still opportunities available out there where children can crawl through a creek for a fun adventure… where we learn that a creek is not really simple at all… but in fact… quite complex.
