2017 Clean Water Celebration
The Clean Water Celebration is an annual event honoring Illinois' rivers and
water. Students, teachers, and resource personnel from Illinois and neighboring
states have come together since 1990 to attend work shops, make presentations on
local rivers and water projects, network with other river stewards, learn about
current water issues, and share common interests. One can see traveling shows
and exhibits, school booths, demonstrations, hands-on science activities,
theatre, art, and music. The goal of this event is to impress upon the students
the importance of thinking globally and acting locally. By increasing knowledge
in the community and schools about the importance of water conservation and
preservation, the Clean Water Celebration establishes the human right to clean
water and a healthy environment.
