H2O (British Columbia)

Blue gold

Earth, the Blue Planet, is covered by seas, oceans, lakes and waterways. There seems to be no shortage of this extraordinary and unique natural resource: water. Nevertheless, we will learn about the importance of taking care of this small H2O molecule through four exciting workshops. Come drink up all this knowledge!
