Fun, hands-on science. Nature field trips. Now just add Arizona’s rivers and kids are wild about water!
The Nature Conservancy and Arizona Project WET are working together to create fun and interactive ways for students, teachers and community leaders to learn about Arizona’s rivers—and the journey water takes to our faucets.
This innovative program encourages all of us to keep Arizona’s rivers healthy and flowing:
- classroom activities, science education and water audits
- research field trips that give students an invaluable firsthand look at the state’s rivers
- water festivals that engage young kids in fun activities
Participants in Arizona Project WET will learn the answers to three key questions about our rivers:
- Where does the water that pours from our faucets come from?
- Why are Arizona’s rivers so vital for both people and nature?
- What can we do to save water and protect our rivers?
