The 14th Annual Broward Water Matters Day event will be celebrated on Saturday, March 12, 2016 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 we are planning for the future. 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.
In addition to learning how to save water and money, participants can leave with free native plants or trees just for learning how to do the right thing. To be eligible, attendees will need to visit at least 12 of the event's exhibits and obtain 12 stamps. More than 45 educational exhibits and booths will be on display to help residents learn about water conservation techniques, smart irrigation, native landscaping, and what role they play in protecting and conserving our water supplies.
Other activities include crafts for children, rain barrel and native landscaping demonstrations, the Food Truck Invasion, and a variety of giveaways and raffles. Activities will begin at 9 a.m. and run through 3 p.m.
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 five and under are free. Tree Tops Park is located at 3900 S.W. 100th Ave. in Davie.
