To mark Water Month this year, the Organisme de bassin versant de la Yamaska (OBV Yamaska) will offer school activities related to water in 43 classes in the region, totaling more than 1,000 students, from kindergarten to secondary five.
The 43 classes are distributed among schools in the municipalities of Cowansville, Ange-Gardien, Saint-Césaire, Saint-Hyacinthe, Saint-Pie and Roxton Pond.
Three animators with scientific experience will provide activities in the schools throughout the month of June. According to the press release, these activities will take place in compliance with health measures and will be adapted according to the school level and the length of the periods. These sessions come from the water educational program Project WET of the Association canadienne des ressources hydriques (ACRH).
