Education at Public Events

Part of FOMR’s mission includes educating people about

our Watershed. We typically participate in a number of

summer events such as:

           (Usually the day following Earth Day Staunton)



  • Blues & Brews

  • Wharf Rat Festival

  • Farming in the Valley


At these events, the public learns about our organization, can see an educational display, and buy raffle tickets for the kayak which we put on display. At certain events we demonstrate with live benthic insects or live fish displays geared towards all ages.



In addition to these public events, FOMR provides a “speakers bureau” (so to speak) for groups and organizations who would like a presenter on a relevant topic.
