Children learning

Children's Water Festivals are an interactive learning experience where elementary students discover the importance of water in their lives and communities.

Long Point Region Conservation Authority partners with other conservation authorities and community organizations to organize and present three festivals: Brantford/Brant Children's Water Festival, Haldimand Children’s Water Festival and the Oxford Children's Water Festival.

These annual festivals bring together the expertise of educators, water quality specialists, community volunteers, conservation groups and government to provide thousands of local students with the opportunity to discover the importance and diversity of water.  

The Brantford/Brant Water Festival has been held in Brantford at Mohawk Park since 2006.  The Oxford Children’s Water Festival takes place every three years, in rotation with the Middlesex Children's Water Festival and the Elgin-St. Thomas Water Festival.  In 2015, the Festival was held for the fourth time in Woodstock at Pittock Conservation Area.

A new festival was introduced in 2014 for grade 4 students from Haldimand County, Six Nations of the Grand River and Mississaugas of the New Credit schools at Taquanyah Conservation Area, Cayuga.
