Wild About Water

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.

During the 2011-12 school year, this partnership will reach 10,000 students in the Phoenix area. At the end of the school year, about 1,800 kids will present what they’ve learned about Arizona’s water resources as part of a Water Investigation Symposium.

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?

Do you want to help educate students on where our water comes from and the importance of water conservation? Learn more about this opportunity to get kids wild about water.
