The Water Hero Challenge
Teachers, be sure to follow up your visit with the Water Hero program! See www.waterheroes.ca for details.
The Haliburton-Muskoka-Kawartha Children’s Water Festival brings together the expertise of educators, water quality and quantity specialists, community volunteers, conservation groups, industry and government to provide elementary students in the Haliburton, Muskoka and Kawartha regions with the opportunity to discover the importance and diversity of water.
Two of the primary objectives of this holistic-focused event are to develop personal awareness of the importance of water, and to foster respect for the natural environment. It is hoped that by increasing awareness and respect, as individuals we will make a commitment to use natural resources wisely.
