The Water Conservation Garden
Mission Statement

To educate and inspire through excellent exhibits and programs that promote water conservation and the sustainable use of related resources.

General Information

The Water Conservation Garden is a 5 acre site located in East County that is designed as a demonstration garden for low water use plants. We were established 13 years ago in collaboration with a few of the water districts to educate home owners on how to save water in their landscapes. We promote total conservation of the Earth through our many and varied classes, exhibits and field trips.
