James River Basin Partnership’s Watershed Education Festival
On February 18th, the 5th grade students and teachers attended the James River Basin Partnership’s Watershed Education Festival in Nixa. The focus of the event was to give students an understanding of point and non-point source pollution and what individuals can do to prevent them. Information in the activities and discussion at each station specifically addressed local issues concerning non-point source pollution. Causes such as construction, agricultural practices, urban development and septic tanks were discussed. Educators at each station emphasized the human connection to the local waterways of Table Rock Lake, Lake Taneycomo, Bull Shoals Lake and James River. They also highlighted that many of these very waterways are where our students swim, fish and canoe. This was a great experience for our Sparta students to see how they can impact or help the waterways in our area.
