Story

More than 650 area fourth-graders are expected to take part in the Watershed Festival at King County’s Brightwater Center in Woodinville, May 12-14.

The Festival theme is “Making Connections to our Water” and there will be many hands-on and interactive activities offered such as wetland exploration, macro invertebrate studies, and pollution investigations.

Festival educators will offer students in the Lake Washington, Northshore and Issaquah School Districts a day of hands-on learning opportunities about the area’s water supply and watersheds. Students will gain a better understanding of how the water we use in our homes and schools relates to our water systems and how freshwater ecosystems provide important habitat for many plants and animals.

Festival sponsors include: King County Wastewater Treatment Division, IslandWood, City of Bothell, Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District, Northshore Utility District, City of Kirkland, City of Redmond, Woodinville Water District, and Saving Water Partnership.

Educators from King County, IslandWood, Nature Vision and Mountains to Sound Greenway are presenting at the Festival.
