Save Our Water – California’s official statewide conservation education program – has launched a special shout-out to kids through a series of educational videos on water conservation produced in partnership with the award-winning, nationally syndicated show Curiosity Quest Goes Green.

The three-minute videos will air on PBS stations in California as part of ongoing efforts to keep Californians informed during this historic drought.

The videos cover saving water indoors and outdoor garden conservation.

“It is important that programs like Save Our Water reach out to younger audiences,” said Jennifer Persike, deputy executive director of external affairs and member services for ACWA. “Curiosity Quest was an ideal partner for Save Our Water to help educate children on what they can do around the house to conserve.”

Save Our Water recently partnered with the Golden State Warriors and Comcast SportsNet to produce a public service announcement featuring the “Splash Brothers” – reigning National Basketball Association MVP Stephen Curry and All-Star guard Klay Thompson of the NBA Champion Warriors. “Splash Brothers” Stephen Curry & Klay Thompson.
