Water! Water! Everywhere, but what did the soldiers at Fort Stanwix drink? Join the Fort Stanwix National Monument staff as they go on the incredible water cycle journey. Along the way you will collect "water molecules" to take home. Join the fun! You have heard of Lake Oneida, but have you heard of Lake Iroquois? Why does the rain water that falls on the east side of the fort go south and the rain water on the west side of the fort go north? Make a rain stick and see. What can you do to help keep our rivers and streams clean? Build a rain garden in your own backyard. Join us and learn how.

So let's get moving and dive right in at Fort Stanwix. The water's great! Become a Backyard Club Buddy, today.
