H20 Youth Education
The Water Conservation Division offers many valuable lessons and materials for our youth.  Whether you are an A.I.S.D. instructor or mentor, scout leader, PTA affiliate or homeschooler, the primary goal of our program is to educate on the importance of water.  Through our programs we hope students will:

  • Evaluate water resources and conservation techniques
  • Critically think about our water supply and future demands
  • Inspire change  

Current teaching lessons are prepared at the K-12 grade level and include subjects on the water cycle, our watershed, water conservation, environmental modeling, water quality, urbanization and stormwater pollution prevention.  For a current list of available resources visit H20 Youth Education Lessons.
