Groundswell and WMEAC are excited to partner once again to bring the 3rd Annual River City Water Festival to the Grand Rapids Public Museum! This free community event celebrates the Grand River through hands-on activities designed to educate and engage students about the importance of our fresh water resources.
The event is open to school groups on Thursday, March 23 and Friday, March 24, 9am – 2:30pm and is open to the public on Saturday, March 25 10am-2pm.
Festival guests will rotate through several learning stations featuring lessons on water cycles and aquatic ecosystems. They will learn how small actions at home can make a big difference in the quality of our river’s ecosystem, our health, and will acquire knowledge about nonpoint source pollution, the leading hazard facing the Great Lakes Basin today.
Volunteers will help with running tables and activities, directing guests, and keeping the festival running smoothly.
WMEAC is recruiting for six different volunteer shifts:
Thursday, March 23: 8:00 am-12:00 pm, 11:00 am-3:00 pm
Friday, March 24: 8:00 am-12:00 pm, 11:00 am-3:00 pm
