Stop by and learn about your drinking water, watersheds, or volunteer to create a container for excess fishing line! Stop by anytime between 2:00PM to 4:00PM at any of our tables to learn more!

Where does your drinking water come from? A representative from the City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department will discuss your drinking water and how it is protected!

What is a watershed anyway? A representative from Wake County Soil and Water Conservation District will explain what watersheds are, and how to keep them healthy! Check out the EnviroScape model – an interactive model of a watershed that shows how our waterways become polluted.

Where does all of the old fishing line go? The president of the River Guardian Foundation will guide you through constructing a container that will be used to collect used fishing line! This fun activity can be done by anyone, and will help keep fishing line out of our waterways!
