Water Festivals - Make a Splash with Project WET
West Virginia celebrates the importance of water with daylong water festivals for 4th and 5th graders conducted in Charleston, Grandview, Kingwood, Fayette County, and Wyoming and McDowell Counties. The events are part of a nationwide effort to raise awareness of the critical need for water education. Water festivals include interactive learning stations and exhibits where students engage in curriculum based, hands-on water activities.
Organizations that collaborate with the DEP to provide this fun and educational opportunity include the National Park Service, Army Corps of Engineers, and local watershed organizations. For information about hosting a water festival in your watershed, contact Tomi Bergstrom.
