Water Conservation Campaign Tour Reaches Mayors and Residents Nationawide to Inspire Environmental Action

March 5 - April 16, 2013

The Wyland Foundation, Toyota, US Environmental Protection Agency and their partners in conservation are embarking on an 8-state U.S. educational tour March 5 – April 16 to remind people around the country how the conservation and recycling of water is one of the single best solutions for a sustainable future.
The centerpiece of the tour is the Wyland Clean Water Mobile Learning Experience, a 1,000 square foot interactive exhibit on wheels solely dedicated to demonstrating the many ways water shapes our lives. The traveling exhibit uses interactive models - from an onboard running river to a 40 person theater with computer controlled special effects - to explore our nation's complex relationship with its water resources. The tour will stop at schools and community events in the Midwest, Northeast, South, and the West.
"The Mayor's Challenge encourages adults to become more water wise," said environmental artist Wyland. "This cross-country educational tour allows us to share that message at schools, community centers, and festivals, as well."
