Children’s Water Festival at Mill of Kintail, Sept. 26

Mill of Kintail Conservation Area to be flooded with students for Children’s Water Festival

Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) along with its partners is pleased to bring the Eastern Ontario Children’s Water Festival to the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area.

The festival takes learning about water conservation out of the classroom and delivers it ‘naturally’ to Mississippi Mills and Carleton Place’s Grade 4 students. More than 250 students will attend the event, which features hands-on activities, each designed to demonstrate how even small conservation efforts deliver big conservation returns.
