2019 Children's Water Festival

The 16th annual Children's Water Festival was held on March 19th at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma. Just shy of 700 students attended this year, representing 10 Pierce County schools.

They participated in a wide range of activities, wildlife exhibits, equipment testing, pollution investigations, and much more. Nearly 120 community volunteers and partners from 44 organizations helped make the 2019 Festival a huge success!
