NeWTs workshop series helps residents save water



Sonoma Ecology Center (SEC) will host a series of free workshops this month focused on learning from local experts and from one another, exploring simple everyday ways we can better steward our precious water resources in Sonoma Valley.

Bring a snack to share, and your knowledge and questions. Participants who attend the entire series will be entered into the raffle for the SEC’s Water Winner Prize Package, which includes a rainwater catchment kit. All participants receive local resource guide, water-saving tools, rebates and coupons.

Held at Sonoma Garden Park Wednesdays in October, 6-7:30 p.m., 19996 7th St. East in Sonoma. Registration includes all sessions.
