Love Where You Live!

Love Where You Live” is the theme for this year’s environmental education programs offered through Des Moines Water Works and the Urban Environmental Partnership (UEP). 

Did you know the UEP offers 16 FREE presentations on topics like drinking water treatment, waste water treatment, the water cycle, understanding watersheds, water’s link to health, recycling and waste reduction, and water pollution and prevention?  All metro area elementary and middle school science teachers receive a brochure at the beginning of the school year that describes these programs. Most of the programs are geared for K-12, but the UEP also gives adult programs on the same environmental topics and schedule tours of Des Moines Water Works, Metro Waste Authority’s Metro Park East Landfill and the Waste Water Reclamation Facility.

To schedule a presentation or tour, contact Gail Peckumn at peckumn@botanicalcenter.com. For more contact information and descriptions of the presentations, check out the program brochure at www.dmww.com – click on Water Education.

When we all learn to take care of the world around us, we will all Love Where We Live!
