Come and visit the Quinte Conservation Information booth on Monday, August 27th, all day, in front of The Midtown Brewery.
The local conservation authority will set up two interactive activities for families to explore: the Watershed Model and Critter Pail Activity. Visitors will have the opportunity to see how the local watershed works, as well as being able to net and learn about the critters that make our local creeks and streams home.
Almost 2/3 of residents in Ontario rely on surface water to meet their daily needs. Surface water is water that is visible on the landscape (lakes, rivers, streams). In Wellington's case, water from Lake Ontario is transported through an intake pipe directly into a water treatment system.
