The Adirondack Waterfest is a one day event held in different communities every summer throughout the Hudson and Champlain Valleys. This event showcases local businesses and organizations that are involved in water quality and gives them a unique opportunity to disseminate a large quantity of educational materials to a local audience. Hundreds of people from surrounding communities attend to learn about their local water bodies through presentations, games, educational exhibits, nature walks and much more. An array of water quality issues are addressed, such as stormwater runoff, erosion and sediment control, wells, septic systems and watershed and lake health. It is an all day event that is free, and is funded by local non-for-profit organizations, city and county entities and private and state grant funding. Adirondack Waterfest is sponsored by the Greater Adirondack Resource Conservation and Development Council and has been held for over 14 years throughout Warren, Washington, Essex, Clinton, Fulton, Hamilton and Saratoga counties.
The 2012 Adirondack Waterfest will be held at the Penfield Museum in Crown Point, Essex County on Friday, July 13, 2012 from 10 am to 4 pm.
