On April 1, 2013, our 4th graders had a guest presentation during garden time about the importance of the Tuolumne River to California’s freshwater supply. At the end of the presentation volunteers were asked to act out freshwater use by different consumers, such as Central Valley Farmers, Bay Area Families, businesses, and wildlife. They then brainstormed ways for water consumers in each group to conserve water in order to bring our freshwater levels to a “green” or safe zone. This free presentation was provided by the Tuolumne River Trust and presented by their intern, Janelle. We thank them for visiting and organizing the presentation for us! VIsit their website to learn more about the Tuolumne River and ways you can get involved.
