Our 3rd grade classes love coming to the Water Conservation Garden for a Ms. Smarty Plants Field Trip! It is fun, educational, and engaging! We learn so much about how to Earth Heroes! Students have opportunities to touch and smell different kinds of plants. They also get to taste different kinds of vegetables and learn about water conserving plants. Lastly, they learn the importance of not wasting water which is so crucial to Southern California.

This field trip is always my favorite. I love the water conservation lesson, they present in a way that 7 year olds can understand.
