On Saturday March 10th, get ready for the 9th annual “Water Matters” event. It’s just around the corner at Tree Tops Park, located at 3900 S.W. 100th Avenue/ Nob Hill Road in Davie, Florida. For almost a decade, Water Matters has educated policy-makers, homeowners, families, and kids about the importance of learning to conserve one of our most precious resources – water. It’s a useful and fun day spent in a natural setting, great for families with young kids, or for those looking for an inexpensive and educational way to spend a Saturday.
Learn to Conserve Outdoors…
Get into the flow of over forty Florida-friendly workshops, all focused on ways to conserve water. Water Matters Day aims to teach Broward residents about everything from landscaping practices to everyday conservation. Those with a green thumb should check out one of the many workshops facilitated by landscaping experts. At-home gardeners can learn how to create a less water-dependent garden. If you go, check out the popular NatureScape sessions. The sessions also focus on how to protect drinking water for people, animals, and plants.
Participants can also learn how to conserve water at home thanks to the many free talks and workshops given throughout the day. Attendants get an in-depth look at ways to save water in the kitchen or the bath and learn ways to lower their monthly water bill, a great chance to save your green while being green. Plus, participants who visit at least twelve of the workshops will get a free native tree or plant to take home.
Bring the kids out for a fun day of face painting, clowns and free giveaways. The Kids Ecology Corps will have a booth there as well. The KEC gets kids and teens involved in nature conservation through information, fun, and hands-on demonstrations. Live entertainment and craft workshops will also be part of the entertainment.
