The Detroit River Water Festival is a day-long educational event designed to help sixth-grade students learn about our most precious natural resource – clean, fresh water. Students from Detroit and Windsor area will come together to learn about the Detroit River in this bi-national event.
This FREE program helps students appreciate the importance of water and how it impacts their daily lives. It also provides students with hands-on activities to help them understand water resource-related topics including ecosystems, social studies, the geosphere and the hydrologic cycle. Students will learn the central role water and the Detroit River play in the region’s economy and quality of life.
Classes will rotate through four different outdoor and indoor learning stations along the Detroit Riverfront. Indoor presentations will take place in the GM Learning Center inside the Renaissance Center. Lunch will be provided to students at Rivard Plaza.
