WateReuse Nevada Hosts Girl Scouts to Learn About Water Reuse

Volunteers from WateReuse Nevada, led by Dr. Erica Marti of University of Nevada, Las Vegas, hosted a troop of Girl Scout Brownies (grades 2-3) to earn a LOVE water badge. The hands-on activities helped the students understand water contamination, the water cycle, and water recycling.
