Kingston – The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) is once again partnering with several community and environmental organizations to present the fourth-annual Great Lakes Water Festival.
The annual event is designed to motivate Grade 4 students to become water stewards in their homes, classrooms and community. The fun-filled outdoor activity stations combine interactive, hands-on learning opportunities for students to ‘soak up’ knowledge on water conservation and protection, water health and safety, water science and technology, water and society and indigenous water teachings.
Hundreds of students from across Kingston will gather on Thursday June 6, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lake Ontario Park in Kingston.
Other partners for the Great Lakes Water Festival include the City of Kingston, Frontenac Arch Biosphere, Katarokwi Indigenous Grandmothers Council, Katarokwi Turtle Lovers, KFL&A Public Health, Kingston Fire & Rescue, Limestone District School Board, Matt Ellerbeck (snake conservationist), Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks, Ontario Provincial Police, Queen’s University, Sustainable Kingston and Utilities Kingston
