This pre-college program led by Creek Connections, Allegheny’s award-winning environmental education outreach program, for 15 years as Creek Camp is now Freshwater Academy where we will continue this unique opportunity to explore the nationally recognized and biologically diverse French Creek watershed. Creek Connections has forged an effective partnership between Allegheny College and regional K-12 schools to turn waterways into outdoor environmental laboratories.
Do you have a love for our natural environment? Do like exploring the outdoors and getting wet? Want to learn outside the classroom in an interactive setting?
You can do all these things while on a college campus! This experience takes place at Allegheny College in Meadville, PA. While living in college residence halls, you will participate in various activities. You will study fresh water ecology in the beautiful streams of Northwestern, PA, observe wildlife, learn from experts, all while earning college credit. You will interact with Allegheny College faculty, staff and students as well as regional environmental professionals.
This is a physically and mentally demanding class. We know you are up for the challenge of long days, getting in and out of creeks, and working in teams on projects. Do not miss out on this unique opportunity!
