Rally for the Rivers Eco-Fest, June 1, 2024



Rally for the Rivers Eco-Fest, hosted by Clean Ocean Action and the Rumson Environmental Commission will return to Victory Park for its 6th year on Saturday, June 1st from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm (rain date: June 2nd). This environmental celebration of the Navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers offers the small to the tall a morning of free eco-activities, including: seining, environmentally friendly crafts, hands-on environmental demonstrations, face painting, music, and more! 

 

Every activity at Eco-Fest provides an important environmental lesson, which many teachers and parents find useful to connect with the climate change curriculum during the second half of the school year!  

 

For teachers to incentive student attendance, we encourage offering 1 pt extra credit or a homework pass to any student who completes the Passport Challenge at Eco-Fest. The Passport Challenge encourages students to travel to every activity station, where they will learn important environmental lessons while filling up their passport with stamps that show participation! (See last year’s Eco-Fest Passport.) In addition to receiving a possible incentive from their teacher, fully stamped Passports will be redeemable at local businesses for free treats and big discounts! This is a wonderful way for students and families to get outside, learn about local waterways, and get rewards for doing so. 

 

Ready to participate? If you’re interested in spreading the word to your students, please fill out this brief Eco-Fest Interest Form.  

 

Here is a shareable link to the Eco-Fest Poster to circulate to any students, teachers, and parents.  Additionally, we encourage posting on school websites and/or sending out information on parent chain emails. Let us know if there are any necessary permissions to fill out for poster sharing. 

 

Thank you! We hope to see you at Victory Park on June 1st.
