Even though we all need and use water every day, the urban water cycle remains a mystery for many of us. Water Discovery Day was an opportunity to deepen personal connections with our local waterways. The event shed light on where our water comes from, what happens to water after it’s used, and why clean water is vital for our community and a healthy environment. With fun ranging from boat building to water coloring to a water-themed dance class, Water Discovery Day featured a variety of activities hosted by AlexRenew and our community partners for attendees young and old.
