Join us in California’s Water Awareness Month Celebration!

Water is a serious subject in California, but that does not mean we cannot also have fun while we learn more about it.  For 31 years, the month of May has been known as California’s Water Awareness Month to help educate everyone on using water wisely.  This year, Santa Margarita Water District (SMWD) has transformed their in-person gatherings into a series of fun activities around the community that will keep us apart but still connected.


Bionerds is proud to partner with SMWD to provide ONLINE Biology workshops for FREE to SMWD customers from K-8th graders during the month of May 2020. We welcome children from Rancho Santa Margarita, Mission Viejo, Coto de Caza, Las Flores, Ladera Ranch, Rancho Mission Viejo, Talega in San Clemente, and San Juan Capistrano.   Learn more about Santa Margarita Water District’s month-long celebration at



Come and join our LIVE and fun INTERACTIVE online biology workshop for kids! Your child will learn about water facts, watershed, and how to and who keep our water clean.    We will do water filtration and polluted-water cleanup activities LIVE with our teacher.  A simple supply list to gather will be provided before class, but not required to have to join the class.   Zoom, an online, interactive real-time classroom, will be used in class.  Recordings of the class will be available for parents and students for a limited time.  This class is FREE for children of SMWD customers.  

Our classes will be offered twice on Thursday, May 28, 2020.  Please register ONLY ONE class for the same student (1 registration per household).  The deadline to register for class is May 27, 2020.

  • 2pm-3pm PST (Class code: SM0200)
  • 3:15pm-4:15pm PST (Class code: SM0315)
