The Litchfield Park Historical Society is looking to increase awareness of Arizona’s water resources, history and management.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 13, the Historical Society’s museum will hold a free water festival in partnership with Arizona Project WET, and partially funded by a grant from the Salt River Project.

The event will feature hands-on activities, demonstrations and displays. Among the exhibits will be 3-D models of groundwater and watershed movement, interactive water experiments and activities, and informational booths. Food trucks will be on site.

The museum will also be open for visitors to experience its most recent exhibit, “Water: the Evolution of a Resource,” which focuses on water in Arizona and the Southwest Valley from prehistory to present. The exhibit, which opened last November, runs through October.

The Litchfield Park Historical Society Museum is at 13912 W. Camelback Road, Litchfield Road, at the northwest corner of Litchfield and Camelback roads.
