CORPUS CHRISTI - Kids learned all about water conservation at this afternoon's annual World of Water event. Organizers showed kids what storm water, waste water and water utilities do in Corpus Christi. The event featured all sorts of fun activities and displays to teach kids about this stuff in a fun way. There was even a man dressed in an Earth costume on hand. Kids who were there say they learned what they need to do to protect the Earth and stay healthy themselves.
Two kids, Kelly and Jordan Hooper, said, "we're learning to wash our hands and don't eat dirty food that's off the floor."
Organizers say they hope they can teach kids about water conservation while they're young so they grow up to be wiser consumers.
