World Water Day Festival

 Ever wanted to travel through the water cycle as a drop of water? Or explore the aquatic residents of the Stony Brook?

Want to learn why water droplets cling to themselves and other objects? Or do a taste test of water samples from a variety of sources in our watershed?

You’ll have your chance on March 23 when The Watershed Institute will hold its inaugural World Water Day Festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  

Family fun on World Water Day will include hiking to the Stony Brook, exploring macroinvertebrates under microscopes in our lab. Consider casting a fly fishing rod and marvel as experts create colorful fishing lures. Get stamps on your Water Passport and collect aquatic super-critter cards!

Come play water-themed games outside and inside the LEED Platinum-certified Watershed Center. Visit our pools to learn about fish migration and aquatic food webs. Play games including the H20 Olympics game, a water cycle game and a simulation of gathering water in different parts of the world. Hands-on activities also include a display that demonstrates how human activities impact water and the environment.

Learn about how to be a “River-Friendly” resident with simple steps and small changes in habits that will help preserve water quality in your neighborhood. Sign up for an upcoming spring workshop on rain barrels, a tool for conserving water that is easily added to your residence.

Explore our rain gardens and learn about other green infrastructure on a tour of the Watershed Center. Come join us at this family-friendly event!

Walk-ins are welcome. To ensure faster check-in, please pre-register. 

Designed for all ages; children under 3 are free.
