2019 Children's Water Festival


The 2019 Festival will be held on March 19th at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma.  See the links below to see how you can participate.

The 2018 Festival was held on Tuesday, March 13th. There were roughly 696 5th graders from 8 local schools on hand to learn from local experts and educators. They participated in a wide range of activities, including water testing, modeling, fish anatomy investigations, and much more.  Over 120 community volunteers and partners helped make the 2018 Festival a huge success!
