About 700 students take part in Delaware Make a Splash festival

Students from grades 4-through-7 are heading outdoors today for a learning program about water and water resources.

The “Make a Splash” festival at the John Dickinson Plantation and the Delaware National Estuarine Reserve on Kitts Hummock Road includes about 27 hands-on activities centered around the historical uses of the area’s water supplies as well as current issues.  The Delaware Department of Natural Resources developed the program in conjunction with the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, the John Dickinson Plantation, Tidewater Utilities, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.  The learning program includes a look at horseshoe crabs and other marine life.
