The Festival focuses on connecting students to our water systems through hands-on and interactive activities such as wetland exploration, macro invertebrate studies, and pollution investigations.

Story

More than 450 area fourth-graders are expected to take part in the Watershed Festival at King County’s Brightwater Center in Woodinville, March 21-22.

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.
