Water Festivals educate elementary students (primarily 4th graders) about the importance of water resources and water quality through fun and educational festivals which include hands-on activities, education from a variety of "water" professionals, and an entertaining show (like Eco-Magician Steve Trash).
The 2024 Madison County Water Festival will educate Madison County 4th grade students about surface and ground water through hands-on activities and a very engaging eco-entertainment show featuring illusionist Steve Trash!
Students will learn where drinking water comes from, how to protect it, and how water is linked to forests, wetlands, wildlife, and more!
