Water Festivals are a very popular way to help youth become interested in water resources, clean water, human impacts on water and more! Below are links to resources that we have made into 4 foot posters for these events.
- A great poster for youth pre-k — 3 about the water cycle is available in PDF and JPG by USGS
- A water cycle poster for older youth and adults produced by USGS (printed at 4 feet, it does come out pixelated)
- One of the most beautiful images of watersheds that exists can be purchased from Etsy for $8.00 and downloaded instantly.
- Soil and water resources are intertwined. Thanks to Dr. Mike Urban of the Missouri Geography Department the MGA has been able to create a poster of soil profiles from his research photographs. The poster is 48″w x 27″h and can be downloaded.
- A good image for helping people understand more about the soil horizon and what they are seeing is this graphic of a soil horizon with descriptors.
- Thanks to Mike Weller at Missouri Department of Natural Resources for sharing one of their heigh resolution copies of the “Our Missouri Waters” map of the Missouri Watersheds dated August of 2016. Please note that this PDF is a large file. (49MB)
- If you are interested in a smaller image of the “Our Missouri Waters” map, it is available at the DNR website.
