Join the French Creek Valley Conservancy for a presentation on river snorkeling on May 30. Underwater naturalist Keith Williams will share his adventures of exploring and discovering the underwater world of rivers and streams in the Mid-Atlantic region.
We often perceive that there isn’t much to see beneath the surface of our nation’s freshwater rivers and streams, but once we look underwater, an incredible world appears. Animals of diverse colors, shapes, and behaviors live in freshwater ecosystems. The underwater world of our rivers and streams is unexpected, largely unnoticed, and amazing!
Keith Williams is the founding director of education and is the current executive director at NorthBay, one of the largest outdoor education programs in the U.S. He has developed river snorkeling-based science curriculum, and established river snorkeling programs for non-profits and the U.S. Forest Service. Keith has led thousands of people on river snorkeling adventures. His first book on river snorkeling, Snorkelhead: Adventures in Creek Snorkeling, was published in June 2016. His second book on river snorkeling is due to be published by Stackpole in 2020.
The event will be held at the First Presbyterian Church, 890 Liberty Street, in Meadville, Pennsylvania. Light refreshments served at 7pm with presentation starting at 7:30pm.
