The Pierce Conservation District is looking for a few more participants for the 2016 Tacoma-Pierce County Children’s Water Festival. For 13 years, this event has been providing unique and valuable opportunities for reaching hundreds of Pierce County youth with important messages about water quality and conservation. This year, on March 15th, 2016 at the University of Puget Sound, more than 1000 5th graders are expected to attend.
Event organizers are seeking volunteer presenters to offer hands-on activities, dynamic presentations, or exciting exhibits to share with the students. Chris Towe, one of the festival planners, emphasizes the flexibility of what is needed, saying, “It’s about showing how important and interesting water issues are to each of us. All of the different things we do during this program have that one goal in common.”
In addition to people to teach some of the larger group sessions, volunteers are needed to serve in a variety of other roles: activity assistants, class guides, registration, general support, and others.
“We could not put on this event without the help of our many partners'” says Towe. “Visit the Pierce Conservation District website to learn more about the Festival and to download the invitations and application, depending on which role you would prefer. Please send in your completed forms as soon as possible. If you have any questions about participating in the Festival please let me know.”
