Otter Creek Academy

Wolf Creek Dam August 22, 2016

OCA students toured Wolf Creek Dam to learn about electricity and flood control. The history of the dam included when, why and how it was constructed.  A tour of the inside of the dam made the information come to life with massive pieces of equipment.  The tour guides were workers so they could give first-hand information that made the process interesting.  A video included pictures of the process of the construction and the repairs that have been made later.

The museum provided an opportunity to see real native fish and animals, as well as learn about how wildlife exists together. The hatchery allowed the girls to see the three fish breeds raised at the Wolf Creek Hatchery—from eggs to fish ready to be stocked in local creeks and rivers.  The girls enjoyed feeding the fish and were amazed at the quantity.
