Finally, water provides a great way to educate people.

Observing organisms in the water, playing in the water, and collecting information about water is a powerful way to learn science and facts about the natural world. Virtually all school subjects can be taught using water, waterbodies and wetlands as a natural medium of study. Water is also a great medium to use to teach environmental stewardship and environmentalism because all of the good and bad in the environment are connected to water.
