Annual Children’s Water Festival

The 19th Annual Children’s Water Festival was successfully conducted on May 7, 2014 at Fort Lewis College. This was the largest festival to-date, with more than 900 fifth graders attending from 44 classes in the Dolores/San Juan River Basin. Classes came from Aztec, Bayfield, Cortez, Dolores, Dove Creek, Ignacio, Mancos, Pagosa Springs, and Silverton. More than 100 volunteers, in the form of student guides as well as presenters, made the festival possible. Most of the presenters represented area natural resources and water-related agencies. Thank you volunteers and the Southwestern Water Conservation District--the annual sponsor of the festival for an educational, fun, and successful day and event!
