When/where: Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum
Why: Learn about where your water comes from, then check out the Great Engines hall, and see where the water used to come from. Take a tour, go on a scavenger hunt, show off in Waterworks Jeopardy, or get hands-on with some projects at the site. Bring the whole family, and get a new appreciation for your glass of water. 
How much: Free

When/where: , 2:30 p.m. Saturday
Why: The Boston Harbor Island Alliance is looking for girls with poise, condfidence and a smile, who would enjoy walking down a runway in front of an audience of up to 500.

High school juniors and seniors who would like to volunteer can email Melissa at AGFS@islandalliance.org for more information.
