2014 Children’s Water Festival

9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Theme: The Water Energy Nexus
The Central Colorado Water Conservancy District created the Children's Water Festival in 1991. This festival is one of the oldest children's water festivals in the nation. In 2006, the City of Greeley Water Conservation and Stormwater programs began co-sponsoring the event.
The Children's Water Festival in Greeley is a free event for 4th grade students in Weld, Morgan and Adams Counties. The water festival brings water professionals from around Colorado to provide presentations and activities about water, conservation, human health, and aquatic life, while covering a wide range of curriculum areas including language arts, math, science, social studies, visual art, and health. The festival goals are to teach students that water is an essential, limited resource and that they can take action. The event provides teachers with materials and lessons that they can use for years to come.
