Much of the water flowing through Flat Rock Brook comes from runoff of rainfall and snow melt throughout the surrounding suburban developments. We are monitoring the following water characteristics to help people understand the impact they can have on aquatic ecosystems, to identify specific problems, and to work towards solutions of those problems. We sampled water from 4 locations of Flat Rock Brook: the northern tributary, the southern tributary, north of Macfadden's wetland (after the two tributaries meet), and in the stream at the picnic area along Jones Road.
One of Flat Rock Brook's most popular exhibits is our aviary where we house 6 birds of prey that are all unable to be released into the wild. Their home is now Flat Rock Brook, where our staff provides the care that they need. Our birds act as animal ambassadors and help us teach thousands of people each year about protecting and respecting wildlife. Help support our special birds! Various adoption levels allow our supporters to provide food, enrichment, and enclosure maintenance for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or 1 year. Each level offers different benefits, such as a photo and certificate of adoption for your raptor or even a meet and greet! Choose your raptor today!
