Don’t Miss Out on the Children’s Water Education Festival

Water festivalOrganizers continue to take reservations for the 2014 Children’s Water Education Festival, scheduled for March 26 and 27 at UC Irvine’s Alderich Park. Teachers of third through fifth grade students within the Irvine Ranch Water District service area are encouraged to register for the event.

The Festival presents a unique opportunity to educate students about local water issues and help them understand how they can protect water supplies and their environment. Since its inception 18 years ago more than 100,000 children from schools throughout Orange County have been able to experience the Festival and all it has to offer.

Last year's festival hosted students from nearly 72 public, private and home schools from 20 Orange County cities. More than 65 organizations devoted their time and resources to assist in educating budding young environmental stewards. A total of 782 students from the IRWD service area attended the two-day event in 2013.

The Festival is provided at no cost to Orange County schools. Third through fifth grade teachers and students are invited to attend. Information is available by calling (714) 378-3257, or at info@childrenwaterfestival.com.
