Lake Mamuelle Nature and Scenic Trails

Citizens' Water Academy

This program invites members of our community to spend the day "immersed" in water. Participants spend the day touring our water sources, watershed, treatment and distribution departments. One-of-a-kind tours of CAW activities allow participants access to parts of CAW not normally seen by the public. Citizens' Water Academy is normally held twice a year, in the Spring and Fall, and is open to everyone.

Power of Water Professional Development

This program brings school teachers from around the state together to spend a week of intensive professional development training with CAW staff and other community leaders. This program, which is in partnership with the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, provides teachers with knowledge and tools to take back to their classrooms and share with their students. It also provides PD hours for teachers that participate.

Forest to Faucet Festival

CAW brings the fun and learning to schools across the region through our Forest to Faucet Festivals. This programs brings learning opportunities directly to schools by partnering with other organizations for a half-day outdoor event. Organizations like the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission, Little Rock Zoo, Arkansas Forestry Commission, and others have participated in previous events, bringing exhibits, hands-on learning experiences and awesome games directly to the kids.
