StormFest.

Approximately 1,100 Highline 6th graders visited Des Moines Beach Park October 10-11 to participate in the second annual StormFest. StormFest, a two-day experiential, interactive, stormwater festival, was designed to teach Highline 6th graders about stormwater and watershed science as a fun, inquiry driven learning experience.

Funded by a Department of Ecology GROSS grant, StormFest was a coordinated effort between the municipalities in the Highline School District, including City of Burien, City of Des Moines, City of Normandy Park, City of SeaTac, and King County, and Normandy Park staff and residents, including NP Parks Director Amanda Leon.

Due to the highly diverse Highline population, StormFest organizers made efforts to create an inclusive learning environment, including interpreters, and translated materials.
