As part of an effort to ensure an adequate future water supply in the desert New Mexico climate, Reclamation, the state of New Mexico, and the Santa Fe Metropolitan Board represented by the Santa Fe Water Conservation Committee, developed a water education program tool to assist teachers in educating school age children of the importance of wise water use. The "Coyote Tales" booklet series was developed around a cast of animal characters based on a version of Native American folk tale, to provide water conservation ideas and hands-on experiments for 1100 third grade students in Santa Fe County. The "Coyote Tales" education program teaches children the importance of water in their lives and community and how to be protectors of this vital resource by addressing important water concepts such as groundwater and non-point source pollution.
