Water Festivals

Make a Splash with Project WET

West Virginia celebrates the importance of water with daylong water festivals for elementary students. These statewide festivals 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.

A wide variety of organizations partner with DEP to provide this fun and educational opportunity. Examples include, the National Park Service, Army Corps of Engineers, local watershed organizations and community groups, schools, plus many more. For information about hosting a water festival in your local watershed community, contact Tomi Bergstrom.
