Water Festivals

Find a Children's Water Festival in your community.

In addition to formal environmental education programs, Conservation Authorities provide non-formal learning programs for organized youth groups, environmental day camps, NGO environmental groups and specialized municipal education projects such as Children’s Water Festivals. In 2010, Conservation Authorities participated in 30 Children’s Water Festivals, seven of which were hosted on Conservation Authority properties.

These unique outdoor events teach children about the science of water and how to protect it for the future. These are the same children who will provide leadership in the future to help Ontario adapt to climate change, protect our drinking water sources and build healthy sustainable communities – all the more reason to let them experience and learn in a green space where they will be more likely to remember not only the magic of being outdoors, but the lessons they learned.
