Volunteers needed for Children's Clean Water Festival
Photos and Story by Heidi Edwards
On April 12th, more than 1,000 local 4th– and 5th-grade students will attend the Children’s Clean Water Festival at PCC-Sylvania. Through classroom presentations, stage shows, and exhibits, they’ll learn about water science, watershed ecology, and the vital role that water plays in our everyday lives. It’s a fun, hands-on, educational event – but we need your help!
PCC students are invited to volunteer as Classroom Guides. As a guide, you’ll lead a class around the Sylvania campus to all of their scheduled activities. There’s plenty for you to experience at the festival, too – whether you’re interested in youth education, environmental studies, water resources, conservation, or all of the above.

Portland Community College – Sylvania
8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Here’s what past festival volunteers had to say:
“I wish I attended this as a child. I learned a lot. Very well organized and good balance of hands-on/lecture.”
“The kids loved it! So did the parents and teachers.”
“I really enjoyed working with the kids!”
Additional volunteer roles include helping with event set-up, traffic control, registration, exhibits, and take-down.
No experience needed – training (and lunch!) will be provided at the festival.
