This environmental festival was fantastic!
There were thousands of kids from all over the city. They traveled to the University of Portland with their schools on a great big field trip, where they were presented with demonstrations on water saving strategies all over campus.
Hearty distilled the H2O show (normally one hour) to less than 30 minutes, and had a new audience every half hour!
Web designer and videographer Caelan Huntress was there to film one of the most famous acts from the H2O show, [name].
This short video is a great example of how EarthCapades uses audience participation to keep kids engaged.

This is one of the perks of the EarthCapades Kids Club.
We take requests from the members of the EarthCapades Kids Club for what videos they want to see, and we can make videos on lots of things – how to juggle an apple and take a bite out of it, how to install a low-flow showerhead and save water, or how turtles say hello in the ocean.
There are so many things we can make our videos about – we need your help to decide!
What do you want to see next?
