Education

We are committed to promoting the public stewardship of our shared water resources. To do that, we provide a variety of hands on educational programs from K to gray! Our K-12 programs set up our next generation of leaders to be life-long stewards of water and the urban ecosystems that sustain us. In these pages you will find many ideas, links, materials, and information to help carry out our mission of water conservation education.
