Free or Reduced Cost Stream Ecology Programs

A Boots-in-the-Water Experience for Your Students

Far from the classroom, students will explore the White Clay Creek and surrounding watershed. They’ll collect aquatic bugs, use a dichotomous key and perform water chemistries while learning how scientists determine the health of streams and rivers.

Programs Focused on Science and Stewardship

Stroud Center is a working laboratory, so education programs are developed from our scientists’ research. We cover chemistry, stream ecology, watersheds, entomology and environmental stewardship.

Enjoy Our LEED Platinum-Certified Education Center

The Moorhead Environmental Complex is the home of Stroud Center’s student laboratories and serves as an example of freshwater stewardship put into action.

Program Scholarships Available!

There are several funding sources that allow the Stroud Center to offer programs at no or reduced cost for your school or youth group. Our funding from the Pennsylvania Education Improvement Tax Credit program and other grants to subsidize education programs varies each year. If you can’t come to us, no problem; we’ll come to you.
