Water Appreciation Day at the Capitol

The Oka' Institute was invited by the Oklahoma Water Resources Board to join in their celebration at the Capitol for Water Appreciation Day. The staff including Executive Director Duane Smith had a great time informing legislators and the public about the importance of water. We enjoyed speaking to our Oklahoma State Representative Ronny Johns and Former Senator Susan Paddack.

A big thanks to the Oklahoma Water Resources Board for the invite!
