WATER COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Children's Clean Water Festival
The Children’s Clean Water Festival is a one-day environmental education event for 4th and 5th grade students from around the Portland Metro area. The Festival reinforces STEM, Common Core and Next Generation Science concepts through water-focused classroom presentations, exhibits and stage shows. Each year more than 1,400 students from local schools come to a college campus for a day of learning and fun! If you are interested in becoming a classroom presenter or an exhibitor, more information can found at http://www.cleanwaterfestival.org/.
