Frank Waksmunski, past president of the Carbon County Groundwater Guardians, oversees the work of some of the youngsters who attended the Children’s Groundwater Festival Saturday at the Carbon County Environmental Education Center. Children, along with their parents, visited seven stations both indoors and outside, to learn the importance of conserving water. The event was co-sponsored by the Groundwater Guardians and the environmental center.
