Save Water Texas celebrates Texas Heritage Earth Day

The Save Water Texas team of historical edutainers took center stage at an exciting community event, The Texas Heritage Earth Day, held at the CCEMS Education Center in Spring, Texas on April 21, 2018.

The event was co-sponsored by Harris County MUD 24 and the North Harris County Regional Water Authority.

Visitors were invited back to the mid-1800’s to learn how the history of the Lone Star State was inextricably tied to access to water…it determined where people lived…or died.

The education programs created by Save Water Texas follow the theme, “Learning from our past to influence our future,” and teach water conservation through Texas history.

“The Texas Heritage celebration was great! My grandkids (5 & 10) really enjoyed this, it was fun and educational. All of the exhibit representatives were very good with kids, I was so impressed. Perhaps most important feedback to you all is that there was an eye opening for all of us on of the amounts of water used, how important it is, the necessity for conservation, and protecting the ground run-off. The kids paid attention to the % / gallons contests.”
