Over the past 26 years, the Waterwise Community Center has celebrated Earth Day with over 30,000 5th grade students. Instead of one big festival, we will provide three smaller Earth Day celebrations and bus reimbursement for 5th grade classes. Students will get the opportunity to experience different careers in water conservation first-hand. Through inquiry-driven, NGSS-aligned, hands-on programming, they will step into the shoes of water scientists, engineers, artists, and landscape professionals.
They'll have a chance to meet and greet with local water conservation heroes, the professionals who work to ensure that our communities have a safe, reliable, and clean water supply and a healthy watershed. We look forward to another year of partnering with your 5th grade classes to help grow the conservation leaders of tomorrow!
When: April 9th, 10th, and 11th in 2019.
Where: Waterwise Community Center | 4594 San Bernardino Street in Montclair.
