Learn the Importance of Conserving Water at the 16th Annual Water Matters Day


Broward County, FL - On Saturday, March 10, 2018, the Town of Davie invites you to come and celebrate the 16th Annual Broward Water Matters Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Tree Tops Park, 3900 SW 100th Ave, Davie, FL 33328. Water Matters Day is Broward County's signature water conservation event where residents learn about local and regional water resources, how water is managed, and how Broward is planning to meet our future water needs. This year's theme is "Water Matters…and Conservation Pays".

At the event, residents can receive tips on water conservation, learn about rebates and incentives for upgrading to water-conserving devices and how to create "Florida friendly" and drought tolerant landscapes, and get lots of eco-friendly tips. More than 50 educational exhibits and booths will be on display promoting water conservation techniques, smart irrigation, native landscaping, and what role they can play in protecting and conserving our water supplies. Participants can receive free native plants or trees by visiting at least 12 of the event's exhibits.

Activities include crafts for children, rain barrel and native landscaping demonstrations, Food Truck Invasion, and a variety of giveaways and raffles. There will be two special presentations on Lionfish and Seafood Sustainability in conjunction with Whole Foods Market, a partner in this year's event.

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.
