From The Durango Herald (Dale Rodebaugh):

The festival, sponsored by the Southwestern Water Conservation District, brought students from La Plata, Archuleta, San Juan and Montezuma counties. Twenty-three stations, among which students rotated, each presented a different aspect of people’s relationship with water…

Students also learned about water safety, the danger of invasive species such as quagga and zebra mussels, why native Colorado trout are planted in streams and lakes and why wetlands are important. The presentations were made by members of the local, state and federal agencies, private organizations and businesses.
