After 5 years, and having reached some 3,000 participants, starting in 2020 the Water Authority will no longer be sponsoring WaterSmart Workshops at the Desert Oasis Teaching Garden on the campus of the Albuquerque Academy.  New education and outreach programs are in development, though, so watch this space for further information.  Meanwhile, we wish to thank the Academy and DOTG Director Tiana Baca and her staff for their support and all their work on behalf of the workshop program.

Have trouble identifying plants? We've got an app for that. 

Have you ever wished you could take a picture of a plant and have the internet identify it for you? Then keep reading.
