Water festivals are an interactive method of teaching students the fundamentals of water and Cape Cod’s unconfined, sole source aquifer. In small groups, students progress through a series of hands-on stations exploring and learning. They take home a strong message and a true understanding about how water impacts their daily lives. Students leave the festival with new ideas to save and protect water through simple personal actions and pledge to be a groundwater guardian.
WETFests are managed by Cape Cod Cooperative Extension and are facilitated by the generous efforts of AmeriCorps Cape Cod.
The Cape Cod Groundwater Guardian Team and Year 22 AmeriCorps Cape Cod will be teaming up once again to offer festivals to Cape Cod Schools, grades 3-6, for the upcoming school year. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, WETFest will be delivered to schools as an interactive, virtual learning workshop for the 2020-21 academic year. The goal is to have WETFest available to students by March 2021.
