BROWARD COUNTY, FL - On Saturday, March 11, come celebrate at the 15th Annual Broward Water Matters Day event "Community. Climate. Connected!" from 9 AM to 3 PM at Tree Tops Park in Davie. Water Matters Day is Broward County's signature water conservation event where residents can learn about our local and regional water resources, how water is managed, and how Broward's water managers are planning to meet our future water needs. Residents will receive tips on water conservation, find out about rebates and incentives for upgrading to water-conserving devices, and learn how to create "Florida friendly" and drought tolerant landscapes.
Participants can receive a free native plant or tree just for learning how to conserve the earth's most valuable resource. To be eligible, attendees will need to visit at least 12 of the event's exhibits and obtain 12 stamps. There will be more than 45 educational exhibits and booths to help residents learn water conservation techniques, smart irrigation, native landscaping, and what role they can play in protecting and conserving our water supplies.
Other activities include crafts for children, rain barrel and native landscaping demonstrations, Food Truck Invasion, and a variety of giveaways and raffles.
Admission to Water Matters Day is free, but the park's weekend admission fee of $1.50 per person will be in effect. Children five and under are free. Tree Tops Park is located at 3900 S.W. 100th Ave. in Davie.
