Biologists, ecologists and volunteers from Friends of Wolf Run turned out Sunday evening to give visitors a close-up view of the stream, which runs through the western half of Lexington.
"People often don't get into a creek in an urban setting," said Ken Cooke, secretary of the group dedicated to bringing the watershed back to an ecologically sound basis. "We're in the process of returning a lot of these streams to a more natural state."
In the city, people usually come across the creek — which includes at least 43 springs — only when they drive over it, Cook said. The stream walk was a chance for people to get their feet wet in Wolf Run and see what nature holds.
