The 1st Annual Coeur d’Alene Water Festival is a multidisciplinary environmental education program for 5th Grade students from Borah, Bryan, Skyway, Fernan STEM Academy, and Winton Elementary schools. The Water Festival focuses on our most precious resource—water and the Coeur d’Alene Lake Watershed.
The Water Festival’s components include an interactive in-class presentation by a natural resource professional that culminate with an outdoor field trip where students have the opportunity to touch, see, hear and creatively think about the dynamic world around them as they rotate through 5 different educational stations: Fisheries, Watershed, Water Quality, Animal Tracks and take a Nature Walk. The Coeur d’Alene Tribe will do a presentation and storytelling during lunch. After lunch students attend the “Birds of Prey” presentation by Idaho Department of Fish & Game Biologist, Beth Paragamian.
