Each year the Water Conservation Program hosts a day-long water festival for grade school children. Our theme in 2014 was, Water in the Desert: Sustaining Life. This year's event featured informative exhibits and hands-on activities about hydrology, cultural uses of water, local geography, and environmental impacts.
About 1,500 third and fourth graders from 12 schools came to the festival. Eager learners were greeted with a welcome packet that included a Water Festival Passport. The kids filled 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.
