Water Festival

 

12th Annual Water Festival

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

 

The Water Festival is an educational festival designed to celebrate our local watershed. Every year, environmental education organizations from around the Bay Area come together at Guadalupe River Park & Gardens to teach local students important hands-on science lessons based on topics such as water conservation, pollution prevention, the value of water as a natural resource, and how people can affect their watershed. Formerly the Water Wizard Festival, the event has drawn 300 third grade students and their teachers annually to the park. While the theme remains the same, this year we have invited fifth grade students to attend.
