"Water, water everywhere, let's have some fun with it!" (Paraphrasing Coleridge.)
The 20th annual WaterFest held at Ijams was splashing spectacular! Over 6oo first-grade students and their teachers learned about the importance of water and maintaining good water quality, plus there were a lot of water-centric activities. Splish! Splash!
WaterFest is a free field trip for area students that comes at the end of the school year.
Special thanks to WaterFest partners and sponsors: the Water Quality Forum, CAC AmeriCorps, KUB and the East Tennessee Foundation.
Oh, the watery memories!
