K-12 Teachers and Students Encouraged to Engage in Water Conservation Learning

Child watering plants in a gardenCal Water, in partnership with DoGoodery, has launched its 10th annual youth water conservation education program. This year, the program returns under a new name, Tap Into Learning, with multiple opportunities for students, classrooms, and school-based clubs in Cal Water service areas to engage in activities around caring for water.

Returning opportunities include the art competition, rebranded “A Splash of Creativity,” and $100 grants—now known as “Water Smart Grants”—awarded for classroom water projects. New this year are “Aqua Adventures,” which offer free field trips to 4th- through 6th-grade classrooms, and “H2Oath,” in which students and teachers can commit to a variety of pledges for water conservation.

Details of program components include:

“We are proud that our decade-long water conservation education program has inspired students all over California and will continue to do so in a revitalized format,” said Martin A. Kropelnicki, Cal Water Chairman and CEO. “We hope that the evolution of Tap Into Learning will make caring for water even more accessible to students and teachers across our districts.”

“It is incredibly exciting to be starting the tenth year of this program with Cal Water. Our students consistently impress us with their passion for water conservation and creativity in finding solutions,” said Christiane Maertens, DoGoodery Founder. “We hope teachers will get inspired, too, and participate in this complimentary program.”
