Wise Water Wednesday

The Children’s Room is pleased to welcome Americorp volunteers each school year (September – May) and give them an opportunity to work with elementary and middle school age kids interested in learning about water conservation efforts as part of the Healthy Waters Program.

On one Wednesday each month, the volunteers arrive with games, crafts, activities, and knowledge to share. Times, dates, and topics vary, but will be announced via Facebook, our website, and through handouts in the Children’s Room.

The goal of Wise Water Wednesday is to encourage young people to care for their water systems and to be aware how best to do that.

The Healthy Waters Program

The Healthy Waters Program is an outreach program within the Stormwater Division of the City of Oak Ridge Public Works Department. The program aims to educate the community on how to enhance the quality of our local waterways, address water quality issues in our city and enrich natural habitat in our urban area. Americorp volunteers are tasked with educating our area’s young people on how to care for, maintain, and protect the water we use and on which we depend.
