Learn to navigate a larger than life aquifer and the obstacles that our water travels through on its way to our drinking water supply. Have fun creating an edible aquifer, cruise on a “pirate ship” in search of a treasure island, make your own pirate hats and other crafts, and create your own home “green” cleaner so you don’t have to use harsh chemicals around the house!
This event is a part of the outreach efforts of the Portland Water Bureau’s Groundwater Protection Program. The Cities of Portland, Gresham and Fairview started this program to protect the Columbia South Shore Well Field – a drinking water source for over 800,000 Oregonians.
Show up wearing your favorite pirate costume and bring your adventurous spirit and prepare for a day full of fun and hands on learning! The adventure is free and the first 300 pirate-scientists receive a free Aquifer Adventure t-shirt!
