water matters day browardWater Matters Day is Broward County’s signature water conservation event, where residents learn about our local and regional water resources, how water is managed and how we are planning for future water needs. Residents will receive tips and information on water conservation, rebates and incentives for upgrading to water-conserving devices and learn how to create “Florida friendly” and drought tolerant landscapes.

Participants can take home free native plants or trees when they visit at least 12 exhibits and obtain 12 stamps on their event program. More than 40 educational exhibits and booths will be on display to help residents learn about water conservation techniques, smart irrigation, native landscaping and what role each of us plays in protecting and conserving our water supplies.

Other activities include face painting, crafts and a Children’s Art Village featuring recycled art, rain barrel workshops, the Food Truck Invasion and a variety of giveaways and raffles. One lucky raffle winner will receive an irrigation system upgrade (installation not included) courtesy of Rain Bird Corporation.

Admission to Water Matters Day is free, but the park’s weekend and holiday admission fee of $1.50 per person will be in effect. Children 5 and under are free.
