What is Water Week?
Did you know that Lancaster County has 1,400 miles of streams and rivers? Each year the Lancaster Conservancy hosts Water Week to celebrate our local waterways and educate the community about how they can keep them clean and healthy for everyone!
The Lancaster Science Factory is excited to be a part of Water Week by hosting a FREE First Friday event and a special series of environmental science workshops for kids!
SCIENCE AND ART OPEN HOUSE!
