Students connect to local water systems at Brightwater’s Watershed Festival, May 18-19


More than 450 fourth-graders are expected to take part in the Watershed Festival at King County’s Brightwater Center in Woodinville, May 18-19. Students will gain a better understanding of how the water we use in our homes and schools relates to our water systems.


The Watershed Festival at Brightwater will offer students in the Lake Washington and Northshore School Districts a day of hands-on learning opportunities about the area’s water supply and watersheds.

The festival theme is “Water, A Shared Resource”. During the event there will be hands-on activities for students such as outdoor exploration, animal studies, and science investigations.

Students will learn more about the water systems used in their homes and schools and how freshwater ecosystems are habitat to many plants and animals.

Festival sponsors include: King County Wastewater Treatment Division, City of Bothell, Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District, City of Redmond, Woodinville Water District, Kirkland Public Works, Northshore Utility District, and Saving Water Partnership.

In addition, educators from IslandWood, Nature Vision and King Conservation District will be participating in the Festival.

To learn more about the event, please contact Brightwater Center Director Susan Tallarico at 206-263-8930 or
