Passport To Clean Water

Passport To Clean Water

Each year, organizations throughout the St. Louis Region, whose mission includes water quality, greenway recreation, or conservation, facilitate interactive activities, discussions, and explorations that explain different aspects of water with youth and their families. OSC’s goal with this event is to provide all participants with crucial, take-home knowledge on how they can improve and enjoy the watershed in their own daily lives.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, August 22nd at Greentree Park, in conjunction with Operation Clean Stream. This program is for children, ages 5 to 18 years, and their families. By participating in the program, youth can walk a local greenway, enjoy nature, and learn about natural resources.  At the beginning of the event, each child receives a passport that will be stamped after a visit to each booth and they can redeem their fully stamped passport at the final booth for a prize. This program is great for families, Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops, youth groups, school groups and more!
