2023 Water Festival

This daylong festival, held annually for 6th-grade students living in Monroe County, provides hands-on activities for students to learn about the local environment. The schoolchildren attended presentations held by environmental experts and learned about topics such as water science, pollution prevention, and sustainability concepts, all while utilizing the award-winning IHM Sisters green campus as a living laboratory. The day was supported by the Monroe County Environmental Fund and helped organized by Monroe ISD. The following organizations joined us:

  • Monroe Conservation District
  • Huron-Clinton Metroparks
  • University of Toledo
