This week, area schools visited the Stillwater Prairie Reserve for some hands-on exploration. Students of Cindy Nelson and Megan Weir’s first-grade classes of Newton Elementary School used tools to go into the water including nets and their hands to find various types of creatures. With help from park naturalists, including Kim “Cardinal” Brumfield, students found caddisfly larva and water penny beetle larva. According to Brumfield, these creatures can only be found in clean water.
