WE NEED YOUR HELP….
2004 Rouge River Water Festival
Thursday, May 6, 2004
University of Michigan – Dearborn
8:00 AM – 3:00 PM
VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED
In its seventh consecutive year, the Rouge River Water
Festival has become a renowned
educational event in Southeast Michigan. Last year 2,376 fifth grade
students from 47 elementary schools across the Rouge River Watershed in
Wayne, Oakland and Washtenaw Counties participated in this event. There
is no cost to the students or the schools !
Classes spend the half-day traversing the beautiful University of
Michigan – Dearborn Campus and Henry Ford Estate. Students learn the ways
in which we use water, our most precious resource, and how our
interaction with the environment affects the world around us.
Students will attend a series of 30 minute, “hands-on”, indoor and
outdoor presentations designed by over 100 water resource professionals
from scientific, academic, governmental, business and industry
backgrounds. These presentations are designed to educate the students to
the environmental aspects of water, such as; acid rain, wastewater and
drinking water treatment, oil spill clean-ups, aquatic life and
waterfowl, fish and wildlife habitat, water resource management, the
Great Lakes, and much more.
Volunteers are needed to be student guides. Each class will be
assigned a guide as they register for the festival. The guide will stay
with the class throughout their stay on campus and make sure that they
get to their assigned presentations on schedule. The guide will also act
as liaison for communication from festival staff and as a resource for
