Another Nature Event: Creekside Spring Water Festival – Sunday, April 26

Find Your Treasure at the Creekside Water Festival

Creekside Water Festival

LEBANON, PA. – Come celebrate saving Snitz Creek! Join in the fun at the Creekside Spring Water Festival. On

Sunday, April 26, 2015 from 3-5pm, this family-friendly event will feature a treasure hunt with snacks, prizes, and

much more! Local residents are invited to this FREE event. You can park at the Creekside clubhouse at the corner of

Creekside Drive and Waterside Circle, Lebanon PA. Meet us at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) tent down by

the creek to get your treasure map!

“Sounds brilliant” says Rachael Bowman of Creekside, when asked about the idea of the water festival. Each stop on

your treasure hunt will have an expert to help you protect nature near your home. Learn about plants that clean

water, or what animals eat bugs. Get your hands wet in the creek, and see who lives here!

Over the last year, the Village of Creekside worked with Penn State to control pollution and conserve wildlife near

Snitz Creek. “We planted more than 300 trees and 1,400 wildflowers to help create a healthier natural area” says

Sarah Hurteau of Penn State. As part of their conservation plan, Creekside residents are working together to curb

polluted runoff and make safe homes for wildlife.

You too can make a difference! Learn how working together we can protect nature! Penn State and their partner

organizations will give you tips and tricks on what you can do to promote clean water and wildlife conservation near

you. For more information about the Water Festival, please contact Kristen Kyler at 717-948-6609.
