Muddy Creek - Photos & Movies

Page last updated April 26, 2017

Muddy Creek has become the creek of learning, politics and teaching. When teaching the students about the land, banks and waters that flow down this little creek I tell them a story ...


The little bitty bugs eat the algae, plants and decaying plant material.

The larger bugs eat the little bitty bugs, and the great big bugs eat the larger bugs.
Then the little fishes eat the great big bugs which in turn are eaten by the big fish.
Then the eagles swoop down and eat the big fish.

Then along comes pollution and toxic materials that kills the food of the little bitty bugs.
No little bitty bugs ... no larger bugs or great big ones either.
Soon the little fish die and the big fish follow.

What happens to the eagles that flew above?
