The Grade 2 students at Holy Cross School had a wonderful opportunity to become “Bug Detectives” and learn about the types of water bugs which live in our local creek which spans 52 km. Sarah and Matty, representatives from the Junction Creek Stewardship Committee shared some history about our local Junction Creek and the many efforts which have been made by local Sudburians through the years to revitalize it back to its original state. Students were able to observe and identify real water bugs, such as water scorpions, dragonfly nymphs and many more. They were invited to be stewards of the Earth and join the many families that work together to keep the creek clean and viable for fish and other living creatures.
