The Northern Maine Children’s Water Festival promotes hands on learning about water issues. This one-day event brings together over 600 students and their teachers. Water resource professionals from Maine and New England provide presentations and activities about water, wetlands, human health and aquatic life; there are water trivia quiz shows hosted by local radio and television personalities, as well as activities using music and art. This experience is provided at no cost to the participants. In fact, the festival provides funding to help schools pay the cost of transportation. The festival goals are to teach students about the value of clean water and healthy habitats, and to provide teachers with materials and lessons that they can use for years to come.
