Water as a Resource

Join Master Gardeners of Greater Kansas City and George Owens staff as we celebrate water! Did you know the Earth is made up of 70 % water, and our bodies are made up of 60 % water? For these and other reasons, we need to realize the importance of water and how we can conserve and protect it. George Owens naturalist, Jeremiah Coomes will present a program discussing how we utilize water as a resource, how water can be polluted, and where rainwater goes after a storm. Extension Master Gardeners will have information on how to collect water in rain barrels and rain garden landscaping.
