SAWS and other participants will offer great tips to help spruce up your yard while still saving water, and your favorite local gardening and landscape experts will be speaking throughout the day.

Plus, kids of all ages (and grown-ups too) can learn all about protecting our most precious resource in the Clean Water Mobile Learning Center.
The first 1,500 guests will receive a free drought-tolerant herb plant grown specifically for SAWS, while supplies last. They include: Crete dittany oregano, English lavender and barbeque rosemary.
