Youth Programs and local schools

The District believes it is in all our best interest to raise well informed decision makers to guide future generations. Over the years Pelican River Watershed District has provided area youth and students with the opportunity to learn about and become involved in the preservation and protection of the resources within our care.

  • 4th Grade Water Festival
