Free online water conservation course
The Importance of Online Education
Being an earth-conscious, environmentally-friendly individual takes a lot of research and work. Knowing when and how to save resources does not always come intuitively. Especially in our current circumstances, finding the time to save water, energy, or even recycle properly can seem overwhelming.
We want you to know that we hear you, we feel you, and we want to do our best to help. Part of our current goal here at Extension is to make sure accurate, science-based education is available to you at all times. That way, you can still be an active citizen in a world that is undeniably more difficult to navigate.
Water Conservation in Sarasota County
One offering that we will bring to you is self-paced, online education for little to no cost. To kick things off, we have our first course available now: Water Conservation in Sarasota County. This is a free course based on a collection of resources from the University of Florida. The course, which takes just under two hours, has narrated lectures that walk you through the science behind water conservation, the rules and regulations put in place to conserve water in our county, and what steps you can take to reduce your water use. Some of the topics include drinking water, rain sensors, detecting leaks, and saving water on irrigation.
