The 7th Annual NOW Festival will take place on June 20, 2020 at Mingo Park (500 E. Lincoln Avenue, Delaware) from noon to 3 pm. The festival is designed to engage and educate the community on our land and water resources especially as they pertain to the Olentangy River Watershed. OWA will have a both at the event. In previous years, the festival has had over 20 environmental organizations with information booths, free canoeing, a stream sampling demonstration, a scavenger hunt, a guided nature walk, the announcement of the Conservation Awards, a rubber duck race down the Olentangy, food trucks, a rain barrel raffle, and a free-to-enter raffle with prizes for all ages.
All of the proceeds from the rain barrel raffle benefit OWA. If you are interested in sponsoring and/or painting a barrel for the event, please contact Caroline Cicerchi at firstname.lastname@example.org. Consider also nominating someone you know in the watershed who is doing outstanding work to protect our waterways for the Conservation Awards.
