Become a part of Lexington’s fourth annual Water Week

Water Week, a community celebration of Lexington’s waterways, is seeking submissions for events and activities from March 18 – 25, 2023.

Water Week events should help the community form connections to local waterways and encourage everyone to take steps to improve and protect water quality. Kentucky has over 90,000 miles of surface rivers and streams, and Water Week can introduce those waterways to new audiences.

Last year’s events included stream walks, litter cleanups, a science night, canoeing, volunteer plantings and an information session about SCUBA diving. Photography classes, storm drain stenciling, and book discussions are other possibilities. Events must be free of charge to the public, and can be in person, virtual, or self-guided. Businesses, organizations and individuals are all welcome to submit events.

Lexington’s fourth annual Water Week is a collaboration between the City of Lexington, UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, Kentucky American Water and local watershed and community organizations.
