2011 Madison County Drinking Water Festival
May 10-11, 2011

Festival Overview

The Madison County Drinking Water Festival educates children about surface and groundwater through fun enlightening hands-on activities. We want students to know where their drinking water comes from, how they can protect it and keep it clean, and how it's linked to other natural resources like forests, wetlands, and wildlife. Children will leave the Festival environmentally aware and equipped with a sense of stewardship for our greatest natural resource — water!

All Festival activities are hands on and are designed to help students relate everyday events to the water cycle. The students will also be entertained by Steve Trash, world-renowned environmental magician.

Over 2,000 students and teachers attended last year's Festival. Each student and teacher attending this year's Festival will receive a free t-shirt highlighting the corporate sponsors who make this event possible.
