Fishing for a reading

       Students from Stratton Elementary check the temperature in Mesa Springs Creek in Sondermann Park April 6 as part of the semiannual Keepers of the Water program for schools, run out of the park’s Beidleman Environmental Center. The April 6 program was the first involving the Catamount Institute since the private, non-profit enterprise recently took over center operations. The Keepers program was developed by Colorado Springs Utilities with Friends of Beidleman volunteers.
