More than 1,000 fourth- and fifth-grade students from the Battle Creek area will learn about water protection with hands-on and other activities at tomorrow’s annual Children’s Water Festival.
Students will spend the morning and early afternoon at Kellogg Community College, learning about water protection – at a previous event, students learned how streams work – and listening to the music of Billy B, an environmental performer from Brooklyn, N.Y. Water quality professionals from across Michigan will present to the group on water-related topics.
This event is hosted by the Battle Creek Area Mathematics and Science Center, and the Battle Creek Area Clean Water Partners, comprised of the City of Battle Creek; City of Springfield; Calhoun County Road Department; Calhoun County Water Resource Commission; Bedford, Emmett, Leroy, Newton, and Pennfield townships; the Hart-Dole-Inouye Federal Center; Kellogg Community College; and Battle Creek area schools. The group collaborates on the common goal of protecting the area’s waterways.
May is Water Quality Awareness Month in Battle Creek. Visit www.bcwater.org for more information.
