BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Wal-Mart Stores, Nestlé Waters North America, Cargill, Del Monte Foods and JohnsonDiversey will sponsor a “Make a Splash With Project WET” water festival to educate fourth graders here about water and their impact on its sustainability this Friday. Volunteers from the Arkansas Natural Resource Conservation Services, Wal-Mart, Nestlé Waters North America and Cargill participated in a four-hour training in February, becoming familiar with the Project WET method of teaching. The volunteers will lead more than 300 students through interactive activities that focus on water quality, pollution prevention, the water cycle, watershed protection, erosion reduction, and water use and management. The event will commemorate World Water Day. “One of the Project WET’s core beliefs is that an awareness of, and respect for, water resources can encourage a personal, lifelong commitment of responsibility and positive community participation,” said Dennis Nelson, president and chief executive officer of the Project WET Foundation, in a statement.
