Water Conservation & Xeriscaping Expo
Living in a desert, we all know we need to conserve water. And in this economy, we have an added incentive to save our hard-earned cash by reducing our water bill.
The 2011 Water Conservation & Xeriscaping Expo this weekend February 26 and 27 will help you do just that. And it’s all free. We mean all!
