Water experts and users gather at the Oklahoma Capitol every year for Water Appreciation Day.

The Oklahoma State Capitol is hosting its annual Water Appreciation Day on Thursday.

Water appreciators can visit the Capitol’s second-floor rotunda from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., to talk with water experts from across Oklahoma. Last year’s event featured water-centric non-profits and research groups alongside state, federal and tribal agencies that play a role in water quality and availability.

Oklahoma has been hosting an annual Water Appreciation Day for nearly two decades. The Oklahoma Water Resources Board, which coordinates the event, says it’s meant to celebrate the importance of Oklahoma’s water resources and provide information on management and conservation to anyone who wants it.
