Spring Water Revival
Spring Water Revival: Splash into learning, spring into action!
Presented by the Hill Country Alliance
This spring, the Hill Country Alliance is proud to announce the first annual Spring Water Revival – a month-long, springtime celebration of water in the Hill Country. Throughout April, we will dive into the many ways water revives our communities, spirits, and our hope for the future through programming that focuses on education, outreach, and action. Join us for events, activities, and news celebrating the Hill Country’s water—one of our most precious resources. Click here to learn more and share the news.
After ten years hosting the Rainwater Revival – a family-friendly, one-day event – the Hill Country Alliance is excited to expand beyond rainwater and highlight the many ways water revives, renews, and reconnects us with community and place. This month-long campaign covers all things water – from our region’s iconic rivers and swimming holes to the groundwater beneath our feet to the very infrastructure bringing water to your sink.
Residents and communities are also encouraged to get involved and take action by passing proclamations to annually acknowledge and affirm the importance of water – one of the Hill Country’s most precious natural resources. If you are interested in hosting or supporting a Spring Water Revival event, please contact HCA’s Water Program Manager, Sydney Beckner (firstname.lastname@example.org).
