McBee Water Festival in Pictures

Last week’s water festival at the Nestlé Waters North America (NWNA) plant in McBee, South Carolina, brought together 75 fourth graders from two different local schools. Using Project WET activities such as “The Incredible Journey”, “Aqua Bodies”, “Blue Planet” and “The Long Haul”, 12 NWNA volunteers and 15 high school students from a local chapter of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) taught the fourth graders about water conservation, the water cycle, stream health and hydration.

Here are a few pictures of the day's educational fun:
