Youth Education

With the current drought situation leaving most of Texas exceptionally dry, now is a opportune time to teach our state's youth of water conservation. The Texas AgriLife Extension Service is currently taking part in a project aimed at educating youth about water conservation. In addition, they focus on educating teachers and Master Gardeners to teach youth about water-related issues. This helps to multiple the impact that Extension has on the state's water literacy. The topics that the Extension Service focuses on are watersheds, vegetation's importance in water conservation, and rainwater harvesting.
