What is Aqua Squad? Aqua Squad is a group of 10 students from San Angelo Independent School district that spend the summer learning about water issues in our community and how to interpret that information for public use. The 7th and 8th graders become water ambassadors for the Concho Valley and represent San Angelo across the United States.

Join Aqua Squad to experience their summer of learning through art! The exhibit will include information about drought using cracked soil from the Red Arroyo, a dramatic representation of the severity of drought through the year 2009.

Aqua Squaders will navigate guests through the exhibit speaking about mesquite eradication and local lake levels. Complimentary snacks and drinks will be provided for visitors.
