Dear Parents, Teachers and Caregivers,

Welcome to the ClearWater Kids interactive website designed to inspire the young people in your life to put down their devices — or at least take them outside — and enjoy getting to know nature.

The website — a virtual version of the ClearWater Farm Eco-farm — offers games to play, videos to watch, trading cards to collect, experiments to try, challenges to tackle, and a place of their own for kids to decorate. Perhaps most importantly, there are prompts that lead young explorers outside to uncover the wonders of nature for themselves. Potato the Chicken (no ordinary barnyard hen!) acts as a guide through all the fun with encouragement along the way to understand the importance of water and the interconnectedness of all living things.

Users who are registered on the site get the very most from the experience. You can register your child here.

You can also access our curriculum-linked Resources, developed with science and nature educators, to help you become part of the process along with your children.

We hope that all young visitors to the site will see themselves as ClearWater Kids, part of an ever-growing community, excited to learn more and cooperate with others to help the world be a better place.

Please be in touch with us if you have any ideas for improvements in what we are doing, or to get more involved.
