After the main ceremonies of the River Day in Minuteman National Historical Park with Rep. Niki Tsongas and Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell, OARS sponsored a Water Wise Workshop for a group of 4th graders from Lawrence.  The primary instructor was Bill Froberg, assisted by Paul Goldman and Jessica Furbeck.

The OARS Water Wise Workshop participants were from a program called Groundwork Lawrence, which engages young people by connecting them to the environment through education, healthy food and stewardship.  For over a decade now the OARS Water Wise Workshops engage young children to learn about watersheds, water conservation, and their relationship to the natural world around them.
