Save Our Water Releases Conservation Education Videos for Children

Videos produced in partnership with nationally syndicated show
Curiosity Quest Goes Green

SACRAMENTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Save
Our Water
– California’s official statewide conservation education
program – has released a series of educational videos produced in
partnership with the award winning, nationally syndicated show Curiosity
Quest Goes Green
. The three-minute videos will air on PBS stations
in California as part of their ongoing efforts to keep Californians
informed during this historic drought.

The videos, available on Save Our Water’s Vimeo
page
, are a great resource for parents looking for educational
content to keep their children entertained during the upcoming holiday
break. Save Our Water also will be promoting the videos on its Facebook
page and Twitter feed. The videos cover saving water indoors and outdoor
garden conservation.

“It is important that programs like Save Our Water reach out to younger
audiences,” said Jennifer Persike, Deputy Executive Director of External
Affairs and Member Services of the Association of California Water
Agencies. “Curiosity Quest was an ideal partner for Save Our Water to
help educate children on what they can do around the house to conserve.”

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. recently issued an executive order that
calls for additional actions to build on the state’s ongoing response to
record dry conditions, including an extension of a mandatory statewide
25 percent water use reduction if drought conditions persist in January
2016. Save Our Water urges Californians to move beyond short-term water
saving solutions and make permanent changes to conserve.

Save Our Water recently partnered with the Golden State Warriors and
Comcast SportsNet to produce a public
service announcement
featuring the “Splash Brothers” – reigning
National Basketball Association MVP Stephen Curry and All-Star guard
Klay Thompson of the NBA Champion Warriors. “Splash Brothers” Stephen
