Event Details

Bring your family – and all your questions on our water, our lakes and the programs underway to protect them – for an entertaining and informative morning for all ages.

Watershed Discovery Day provides interactive exhibits and activities on the state of our local water resources, the challenges facing them, and the programs and plans available to address them – and experts from the area agencies managing our water resources.

Have you ever wondered about:
How safe is our water?
Should I be testing my well?
Is bottled water better to drink than tap water?
Where is the best paddling and camping in the area?
What are invasive species, and should I worry?
What is the status of blue green algae?
Are zebra mussels and loosestrife still a problem?
Are major changes underway in our lake and stream water levels?
What is being done with the Haggart and the Bobs Lake dams?

For the Children:
This is a fun and informative morning featuring our educational ‘fish pond’, the Perth & District Library story corner at 11:00 a.m., the microscopic water critters display, and the book and game draw. Also, take the opportunity to renew your membership, and enter the draw for a Maximilians Restaurant gift certificate and one of our popular T-shirts.
