Water Week is a time to celebrate the wise use of water. Clean, safe drinking water is a finite resource that should be protected and used wisely for the benefit of generations to come. By educating and bringing awareness to wise water use today, we help to ensure that the resource remains plentiful. The City of Arcata's Environmental Services Department serves a key role in treating and distributing our drinking water, and would like to call upon all Arcata citizens to work together to protect our source waters, practice water conservation, and get involved in local water issues. Please join the City of Arcata as we celebrate the wise use of water!
On Saturday, May 7, we will culminate this event with a table at the Arcata Farmers Market. Please come visit us! There will be a scavenger hunt, water related games and prizes, a native drought tolerant plant display, lots of great information about a variety of water topics, demonstrations, kids activities, and a display of the poster contest winners.
Have the Environmental Services Department's Tracy Watkins give a 10-minute classroom presentation on Water Stewardship to your class during the last 2 weeks of April and the first week of May. Call or email Tracy to schedule a presentation about water.
