(Apple Valley)– On Saturday, May 2, 2015, Apple Valley Ranchos Water Co. will host its Fourth Annual Spring Conservation Fair at Lion’s Park in Apple Valley.

Beginning at 10:00 a.m. and running until 2:00 p.m., the Spring Conservation Fair will include conservation gardening workshops, landscape and irrigation workshops as well as presentations on understanding the importance of water. The event will also include demonstrations on how to install low-flow toilets, the proper disposal of pharmaceuticals, how to read a water meter, pool safety and more.

“Water conservation is essential; we are currently in a drought and what better opportunity to meet with the public and offer them some great educational workshops and tips to become conservation savvy”, said Norma Armenta, Water Conservation Coordinator for Ranchos Water.

Last year, over 300 community members attended the event, some traveling from as far away as Newberry Springs to learn various methods of conservation, especially those specific to the High Desert region.  In addition to the various workshops and demonstrations, the fair will include raffles, vendor booths, as well as children activities and giveaways.

If you would like more information on the Spring Conservation Fair, please contact Norma Armenta by phone at (760) 247-6484 or by e-mail at narmenta@avrwater.com.
