Chris is right, everyone should educate themselves concerning the future water shortage in Arizona.

Each year there is a water presentation (field trip) for Fourth Graders in the Verde Valley. Here the kids go through five different modules that teach them about water issues. These modules are fun, but at the same time illustrate the water issues we face as a State.

Having been involved in this festival since its inception, I often think,"I wish they had a water festival for adults."

Its fine to teach the children about these concepts, but we need people who make the decisions NOW,( i.e., the registered voters), to understand how water works, what is at stake and how we can work to make sure water is available to us in the future.

Its time for a water festival for adults!
