Education and Service Learning

The TWDB has a mission to provide leadership, planning, financial assistance, information, and education for the conservation and responsible development of water for Texas.

The TWDB provides water resource educational programs for all age groups and provides teacher training workshops on water conservation. For information on K-12 water conservation education resources, visit the TWDB Kids page.

The TWDB also works with community members to encourage Service-Learning in schools. Service-Learning is a method of teaching, learning, and reflecting that involves student involvement and community service.

The TWDB promotes the School Water Audit, which is part of the Service-Learning project Put Some Blue In Your Green School and also promotes the Rainwater Harvesting Service Learning Project. Both Service-Learning projects help schools become efficient water users and raise awareness about the need for good stewardship practices of water resources within the community.
