Haliburton-Muskoka-Kawartha Children’s Water Festival
* Granted $1,500 for developing and constructing two new activity centres.
To provide an active, outdoor hands-on learning event which teaches elementary students the importance of water and water ecosystems; inspiring good water stewardship practices. The intention is that good water messages will be transferred back to children’s classrooms where teaches can draw upon these curriculum-linked messages. Children will also start acting on these important messages, becoming stewards in their homes and communities. Participants including students, teachers and parent supervisors learn that their actions and attitudes make a difference towards water and ecosystems and that we are all ultimately responsible for maintaining healthier water systems for future generations.
