Central Lake Ontario Conservation

* Grant awarded for the Durham Children’s Watershed Festival (DCWF).

Project objectives:

The goal of the DCWF is to increase awareness of grade four students concerning water issues, motivating them to become water stewards in their home, classroom, and community; an estimated 5,200 participants will be inspired over the five days. Like a giant outdoor science centre, the 37 interactive learning centres are all designed to complement the Ontario curriculum expectations and support in-class activities. Activity centres are staffed by trained high school students, community volunteers, and professionals. Topics range from water conservation to water protection and science.
