Clad in a pair of knee-high water boots, Grayson Breaux began digging for bugs, adding to a collection started by Sophia Griffith and Sadie Floyd. Huddled with her fellow classmates, Bella Stanley tried to catch the slippery creatures with her hands. “It’s really fun to be able to get in the creek and see how healthy it is and see how people are taking care of it and to really get in there and do what you’ve been writing about,” said Stanley, a Chestatee Elementary fifth-grader.
