WaterWays Water Education Program

Youth learn about Water Conservation

Program Description

WaterWays is a water education program for upper elementary school students designed to build understanding, appreciation, and stewardship of Putah Creek by exploring the diverse uses of its water and how these uses may be protected.  Putah Creek is the water source for a significant portion of Solano County’s businesses and 400,000 residents.  WaterWays aims to inspire local youth to become informed of and involved in the conservation of this vital resource through interactive and informative programs.  By offering stimulating field experiences and science-based water education taking place in the classroom, future water stewards from rural, suburban and urban environments are made aware of water resources and are encouraged to partake of and promote conservation practices. 

WaterWays is funded by the Solano County Water Agency (SCWA) with contributions from the University of California, Davis John Muir Institute of the Environment (JMIE), the Putah Creek Discovery Corridor (PCDC) Cooperative, Solano County Parks, and other partners.
