UA Cochise Cooperative Extension Water Wise hosted the first ever Family Day @ UA event to help celebrate WAM! Water Awareness month for the month of April. They invited the entire Cooperative Extension family to participate.

There was a petting zoo hosted by 4-H, egg races and other games, plus infused water tasting courtesy of the SNAP-Ed/AzNN Nutrition program, and fun information on keeping your teeth clean and healthy by our very own Oral Health program.

The Master Gardeners opened the Discovery Gardens for a special peek into the breath-taking beauty of the gardens. We even had the Huachuca Astronomy Club on hand to show us how to safely look at the sun during the day!
