Each year the Water Conservation Program hosts a day-long water festival for grade school children. This year's theme (2023) was "Don't Let Water go Extinct."
This year's event took place May 3, 2023 and featured informative exhibits and hands-on activities about hydrology, cultural uses of water, local geography, and environmental impacts.
Hundreds of fourth grade students, teachers and chaperones from elementary schools attend the festival. Eager learners were greeted with a welcome packet that included a Water Festival Passport. The kids fill out the passports as they visited a variety of presentations at booths staffed by local organizations and agencies. Every booth provided fun, hands-on activities about different aspects of water resources.
The kids had a blast while learning about water and the environment.
