In 2017 we celebrated the twenty-second annual Waterloo Wellington Children’s Groundwater Festival. Over 5,000 more local school children in grade 2 through 5 will participate in the Festival at the Waterloo Region Museum, in Kitchener. The Festival ran from  May 26th and Monday May 29th through to Thursday June 1st, 2017. The Festival is one of many Festivals held at various locations across the province, where more than 75,000 children will be educated about issues focusing around the water theme.

Maintaining groundwater quality and quantity in the years ahead will be extremely important for the economic growth and stability of the Waterloo and Wellington areas. The contamination of Walkerton’s water supply by E. coli has heightened everyone’s interest in the water system. The Festival is an excellent starting point for educating children about this important life force, water. We are planning new activities and doing research to make the program ever better, so the next generation is better educated and more environmentally aware. We can not do this without your ongoing support. Why not start the next year right and support this award winning, fun and interactive event that is focused totally around children, education and the environment!

“I did not know that you use so much water just for brushing you teeth… water is really important to us and we should not abuse it.”
