Aqua Fair is a gathering to further the publicsí knowledge about our environment. The event highlights water in particular. This fair is held every May and lands on the weekend before Motherís Day. The Upper Perkiomen Watershed Coalition hosts this event. The location is the Green Lane Nature Center on route twenty nice in Marlborough. Nature is something to celebrate! It is a gift. The natural resources all around us have major value and need to be conserved and respected. We as a community have a duty to protect and sustain the environment. We want our world to survive for our future children and generations more to come.
Aqua Fair serves as a place for non profit, commercial, and government organizations to come and educate the public on what they are trying to accomplish with our environment preservation. At the venue the community will learn the latest technology to help preserve our environment. Thirty organizations attended the previous year and even more are expected this year.
This year all surround schoolís environmental clubs will be showcasing their latest projects. If your school has yet to join talk to your advisor about contacting the fair for more information. Our theme is Watershed Community.
A big part of the Aqua fair is the school contests. All schools in the 5 Upper Perkiomen Watershed districts are invited to submit entries. You may submit a themed art poster per classroom in elementary schools. The winners will be chosen per grade. First, second, and third winners will all receive a prize. First place receives an ice cream party for their classroom. All middle and high schools can submit a poster, science experiment, written entry, or photography. These categories will be individually judged. Winners will receive medals and certificates.
