REMINDER: Free Water School Begins
Posted on 05/06/2019
The City of Charlottetown has partnered with the Town of Stratford to expand the popular Water School Program outside of the school curriculum.

The Town of Stratford has provided water conservation education to Grade 5 students in Stratford and the surrounding area since 2011. This year, the City of Charlottetown has joined forces to expand the program not only to Grade 5 students in Charlottetown, Stratford and surrounding areas, but also to residents in Charlottetown and Stratford.

Beginning on Thursday, May 9, a free Water School Program will be held at Holland College (323 Grafton Street). This interactive learning experience, taught by professionals in water conservation, will include: hands-on experiments, dioramas, fun quizzes, and of course, prizes. Participants will learn about water conservation and various aspects of watersheds including water cycle, groundwater, wetlands, forestry, and buffer zones.

The first session, with a focus on water conservation, will be held at Holland College on Thursday, May 9 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in room 21W (next to MacKinnon Lecture Theatre). The second session, with a focus on watershed protection, will be held on Thursday, May 16, at 6:30 p.m., in room 20W.

This free program is open to all City of Charlottetown and Town of Stratford residents and utility customers. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, visit: www.BeWaterFriendly.ca

A special thank you to Holland College – Prince of Wales Campus for their support with this program.
