Water is vital to our environment, society, economy and ultimately our future. That's why SAWS Education stresses topics such as surface water, ground water, wastewater treatment and drinking water for students and residents – no matter their age. Students who participate in SAWS Education programs can formulate their own understanding of the importance of water in our community through our curriculum, activities and service-learning projects – all of which are free of charge to educators and students.
Not to worry, we didn't forget about the adults. There's a program tailored for them called The Rain to Drain Experience, an engaging community field trip that traces the water cycle from falling raindrops to, well, "after the flush."
Saving water. It's not just for grown ups. Kids need to be water savers, too. It's a lot of fun, and you just need to be between the ages of four and 12.
