Crawdad Creek at Platte River State Park

October 16, 2018
Crawdad Creek hosts aquatic invertebrates, insects, reptiles and fish for visitors to see and interact with. Park naturalists will use the ponds and the organisms that call them home in educational activities for park visitors. The scenic, peaceful setting of the creek provides a place of serenity for park visitors, too. Additionally, the creek serves as the water source to recharge Jenny Newman Lake, which was renovated in 2016. The flowing water also helps maintain suitable oxygen levels within the lake to foster a healthy fishery.
