Interactive Learning and Fun!
The Water Festival, held the second Tuesday of May at Camp Aldersgate in Glocester, is the culmination of the learning year for elementary students who participate in the Scituate Reservoir Watershed Education Program. Elementary Schools from Scituate, Foster, and Glocester, plus Providence’s William D’Abate Elementary School, are invited to participate in watershed-themed games and science experiments, enjoy a nature walk, and watch a watershed-themed drama from the Swamp Meadow Theatre Company. Students also receive prizes from the year’s poster contest and enjoy a picnic lunch. This special day celebrates each student’s achievements while also reinforcing their learning about watershed science and the Scituate Reservoir.
