About Passport to Clean Water Program
The Passport to Clean Water Program began in 2012 as an educational tool for young, Operation Clean Stream volunteers. Each year, organizations throughout the St. Louis Region, whose mission includes water quality, facilitate educational, interactive activities, discussions, and explorations that explain different aspects of water with youth and their families. Our goal with this program is to provide all participants with crucial, take-home knowledge on how they can improve water quality in their own daily lives.
This year's Passport to Clean Water program took place on August 23, 2014 in Greentree Park in Kirkwood, MO. We had 13 educators who gave fun, informative presentations to over 230 children ages 5-18. After having their passport stamped at the presenter's table, each child received a gift to take home, along with their passport. The children learned all sorts of fun and educational things pertaining to the Watershed and their responsibility in keeping it clean and healthy for everyone.
Mark your calendars for next year's event which will be held on August 22 at Greentree Park.
