The Halton Children’s Water Festival (HCWF) provides curriculum-linked education about all aspects of water through inquiry and investigation. Schools seeking Ontario EcoSchools certification can count their attendance at the HCWF as a field trip in the Curriculum category (one submission per grade level).

The HCWF is hosted at Kelso Conservation Area in Milton and combines Ontario curriculum requirements and offers fun, hands-on learning activity centres that are displayed throughout the event in a natural outdoor setting. Nearly 60 interactive activity centres teach children about water conservation and protection, water health and safety, water science and technology, and water and society.
