Water Family Fest!
All are invited to join DNREC's Division of Watershed Stewardship and the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays (CIB) for the Water Family Fest on Saturday, June 8 from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. for family recreation and learning about Delaware's natural environments at this new event. The Water Family Fest event will be held at the James Farm Ecological Preserve at 30048 Cedar Neck Road, in Ocean View, Del.
Bring the family and learn about all the different areas the Division of Watershed Stewardship and CIB work in to improve and protect your waters and ecosystems. You will also be able to get involved with some "feet-wet, hands-dirty fun" through: "Touch a Truck," self-guided hikes, a scavenger hunt, Wetland Storybook walk, kayaking, and beach seining. Exhibits will also provide you with an opportunity for exploration into seagrass, beach grass, shellfish, wetlands, tax ditches, rain gardens, ospreys and more.
This free event will feature family-friendly exhibitors and activities throughout the day, and kicks off the Division of Watershed Stewardship's Dune Preservation Sign Contest. Don't forget to bring your beach towel and a picnic lunch so you can soak up some rays at the water's edge!
Although not required, participants are welcome to RSVP that they will be attending. Please check out the links below for more information, or contact Brittany.Haywood@delaware.gov.
