Is there a special experience you’ve had that connects you to a body of water?
Share a cultural story about the value of healthy streams, lakes or the wildlife found there. Are there any stories about water specific to your family, culture or heritage?
Do you or those close to you have a special connection to water? Interview members of your family or those close to you about what water means to them. Don’t forget to include what water means to you! Use your creativity to tell your personal story of water.
How does being around water make you feel?
