About 650 middle school students from Detroit Public Schools will attend the 2017 Detroit River Water Festival on Thursday, October 19th, 10 A.M.-1:30 P.M. at Belle Isle Park, near the Aquarium and Conservatory, as well as the Belle Isle Nature Zoo.
The Detroit River Water Festival is designed to help middle school students from Detroit Public Schools learn about our most precious natural resource – clean, fresh water. By educating students about water quality, organizers hope to inspire the next generation to be great stewards of water resources such as the Detroit River. This free program helps students appreciate the importance of water and how it affects their daily lives. Presentations include hands-on activities about water resource-related topics including ecosystems, social studies, the geosphere and the hydrologic cycle. Most importantly, students will learn the central role water and the Detroit River play in the region’s quality of life and the role they can play to protect it.
