Waters festival


Four hundred fourth-graders from Warren City Schools’ four K-8 schools will attend the Trumbull Soil and Water Conservation District’s annual “Community Waters Festival” Sept. 11-12 at Perkins Park.

The outdoor educational event includes stations teaching students about water as a natural resource. The children will become water molecules and travel through the water cycle, see the effects of pollution on community waters, and learn how insects give clues to water quality. CCRA accreditation
