The Central California Consortium (CCC) and the Sierra National Forest will host the "Make-A-Splash: Raising Water Awareness in the Central Valley" event on May 26 in Reedley. This event will serve to bring awareness to water resources of the local agriculture and farming communities as well as educate high school students on the significance of water conservation.

"Make-A-Splash" is a collaborative event coordinated by the Generation Green clubs of Edison High School in west Fresno, Reedley, and Orange Cove High Schools. This event will include career presentations from the US Forest Service, Humboldt State University, the City of Fresno Water Conservation Program and many more. Students will learn about watersheds and water resource management, and receive career guidance in natural resources.

"This is a great opportunity to bring the Generation Green Clubs together to gain leadership, build commodity amongst youth leaders and learn about water; our precious natural resource. These young leaders have worked together even though they are from different areas to put together an exciting event that will be both educating yet FUN," said Jim Oftedal, CCC Director.
