SPECIAL: The Pinecrest Aquifer

Active Rec


Activity Description

Ever wonder where the water in your sink comes from? Did you know it might come from Pinecrest? About 5 feet underneath the Pinecrest clay pit, the Memphis aquifer (aquifer = underground ocean), begins and goes on for hundreds of feet. Some of our camp friends came all the way from the University of Memphis to show us how they keep track of the aquifer!


Chill time! As you travel around camp to learn about our underground ocean, make note of any new things you learn or anything you find interesting in your nature journal.
