Water is Life
Whether you're a farmer irrigating crops, a thirsty kid looking for a drink, a toad in a puddle, or a steelhead trout swimming up the Salinas River, water is vital to existence. The Earth Genius program integrates watershed education as a way of connecting people to the resource we depend upon. Through our program youth have reduced marine debris, removed lawns, converted sprinklers to drip irrigation, planted native and/or edible drought-tolerant gardens, installed hundreds of gallons of rain tanks, and funded $2M in low-impact-development retrofits for schools to better manage and educate about stormwater. The best part? Water conservation connects youth to the ecology in their backyard, orients them to their home, and makes science come to life!
