2023 Volunteer Registration
25th Annual Children’s Water Festival
Wednesday, May 10, 2023
Fort Lewis College, Durango, CO
Southwestern Water Conservation District is pleased to sponsor the 25th Annual Children’s Water Festival taking place May 10, 2023 at Fort Lewis College. It’s a science conference that focuses on water in our world. The Festival is geared towards 5th grade students, features exhibits and many hands-on presentations highlighting a variety of water-related topics. The goal is to provide a better understanding of water resources, and the value and importance of water.
To help make this event the success that it is, approximately 30 volunteer guides are needed to lead close to 700 regional fifth-grade students and their classes to various water-related stations on campus. In exchange for this valuable and FUN service a continental breakfast will be provided, a Water Festival t-shirt and gourmet lunch. In addition, if you are a student, the festival qualifies for seven (7) hours of community service. Guides will need to meet at 7:00 am sharp at the FLC Student Union Ballroom and will likely be finished sometime between 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm.
**NOTE: If you are available to volunteer prior to the festival to assist with putting the teacher/presenter packages together, and other light support office work, please let me know! We always need support with this.
We need your help! If you or your organization can help, please fill out the registration below.
