The Lancaster Conservancy is kicking off its fifth annual Water Week today, Friday, June 4, with more than 20 water-based activities planned across the county.

Multiple activities are planned for each day through Saturday, June 12. All are public and most are family-friendly, such as hiking at Climbers Run, activities at the Lancaster Science Factory and much more. The full schedule is on the Conservancy's website: Note that the activities require participants to register.

"Together we will celebrate how our waterways have driven our community’s economic success and how we can take action to protect them for the future," the nonprofit said.

The week will also highlight the conservancy's calls to action: create habitat, protect water and explore outdoors.

The Lancaster Conservancy helps to protect over 7,000 acres of wildlands and 1,400 miles of streams and rivers in Lancaster County.
