The 20th annual Children's Water Education Festival, the largest of its kind in the United States,
was held March 23-24, 2016 at the University of California, Irvine. The event was presented
by the Orange County Water District (OCWD), Disneyland Resort, National Water Research Institute, and the Orange County Water
District Groundwater Guardian Team.
The Children's Water Education Festival presents a unique opportunity to educate third, fourth and fifth grade students about local water issues and the environment and helps
them understand how they can protect water supplies and their environment. All presentations are taught to California Science Standards. Since its inception, more than 115,000
Orange County students have experienced the Festival and all it has to offer.
The Festival is provided at no cost to Orange County schools. Hosting an event of this magnitude is made possible by many
generous sponsors, presenters and dedicated volunteers. We are proud to work with such committed organizations and individuals
