Owen County Water Day

Saturday September 23rd @ 09:00 AM to 11:00 AM

The Owen County SWCD and Purdue Extension are hosting the first annual Owen County Water Day! Join us at the MYPath Trailhead Shelter (Cooper Commons Park & South Main Street) for this family and kid-friendly event with lots of hands-on activities about water quality, water conservation and water safety, all celebrating the White River.

There will be a special live animal education program at 11am with Crocodile Kelly of Silly Safaris. Be sure not to miss this fun, factual, and comedic program that will highlight animals that live in or near the water. And don’t forget to check out the ‘portable creek’ area to learn about macroinvertebrates that indicate healthy streams, watch rain simulation on cover crop demonstrations, and meet staff from the local water company.

Many organizations are partnering on this event to bring interactive, hands-on activities related to protecting our lakes, rivers, and streams. The goal of this event is to increase awareness within the community about how our choices impact the rest of the watershed.
