Imagine a Day Without Water

May contain: text and handwriting

Can you imagine just one single day without water? Can you imagine a day where you didn't use water at all?

Cities and organizations in the Rogue Valley have joined together to bring awareness to the importance of water throughout the basin and all the work that goes in to making that flowing faucet possible and toilet flushable.

Throughout the week, staring on October 19, you, your family, and communities can get involved. See the schedule of events below:

October 19-Bear Creek Fall Fest: Kick off the water-centric week with a visit to our table and fill in the water drop with how you use water daily ! We'll be at Bear Creek Park 11am-3pm.
