PreK-12 Programs
The children of Athens-Clarke County are the future of water conservation, so it’s our job to give them the tools they need to protect our precious natural resource. Through hands-on and interactive presentations, kids learn how to use water wisely while having fun at the same time. The Water Conservation Office promotes a culture of water conservation from the smallest to the tallest in classrooms, summer camps, scouts, and homeschool. View the activities the Water Conservation Office offers.

Adult Programs
