(Kindergarten to Grade 2) – Through the use of stickers and handouts, children learn about the water cycle, where the water goes, and how water is cleaned and treated. They will experience and come to understand the importance of water and our need to take care of it. Each presentation helps explain the different processes in a way that’s easy to follow. This program is approximately 20 to 30 minutes long. For information about this program, please contact Denise Ross at 201-807-5866 or dross@bcua.org.
