Louisville Water Explores Water at the Zoo

Tuesday July 31, 2012

The Louisville Zoo and Louisville Water present “Water Wows” on August 4 and 5 to explore water’s importance to us and to life on planet earth. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, Louisville Water will provide fun hands-on water activities that allow guests to learn about the Ohio River, how our drinking water is produced and the value of a high-quality supply of water. Activities include seeing how sand and rock that’s 150 feet deep in the ground can clean water or making a “water bracelet” that will help you remember to stay hydrated.

“The Ohio River provides our community with an abundant source of water, even during extended dry weather,” according to Kelley Dearing Smith, Strategic Communications Manager at Louisville Water. “Every day up to 75 billion gallons of water flow by Louisville. The River is an amazing natural resource and a lifeline to our community. We’re excited to “wow” Zoo guests with experiments and information.”

Marvel’s Spider-Man is also scheduled to appear both days for a Meet and Greet and photos along with other characters Frog and Toad, Scuffy the Tugboat, Froggy and Louisville Water’s mascot “Tapper.”

This event is presented by Louisville Water Company with additional support by Earth Fare the healthy supermarket.
