Save the date on Thursday, September 28, 2017, for a FREE, LIVE program from Colorado that explores fresh water and watersheds.

Everyone needs fresh water to live, but fresh water is limited and precious. Science can help conserve this natural resource. Join scientists as we follow water on a journey through a watershed in the Western United States. We’ll adventure from the headwaters in the mountain peaks, through the protective forests, into our cities and countryside, and ultimately to the sea. Be a part of this live online webcast and ask your questions to scientists from the US Forest Service and Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Learn how you can take action to conserve and protect the water in your hometown.

Multiple distance learning methods and times will be available for your class. Check back for registration information. Join during any of these times and the content is the same:
-- 9 – 9:45 a.m. MT
-- 10 – 10:45 a.m. MT
-- 11 – 11:45 a.m. MT
-- 12 – 12:45 p.m. MT

This program is being brought to you in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and Prince William Network.

Got a Question?
Ask a Fresh Water Scientist

Why does saving/using less water help the environment?
Using water-saving techniques diverts less water from our rivers, bays, and estuaries, which helps keep the environment healthy and can save money, too!  Less demand on wastewater treatment, which converts used water into drinkable water, helps to reduce the amount of energy and chemicals used to treat, pump, and heat water.  These are all energy demands and can cause pollution of their own, so reducing those demands by using less water overall is great for the environment.
