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)
Riverfest (Usually a Saturday in April)
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.
