How's this for an idea: the 'International
Year of Freshwater'
Ok, so it's more than an idea, yep it is this year,
2003, the 'International Year of Freshwater'
Days and weeks to celebrate this are:
February 2nd: World Wetlands Day: No Wetlands
- No Water
February 2 - 9: World Wetlands
March 22: World Day for Water:
Water for the Future
October 19 - 25: National Water
And there are a number of other days which have an
environmental tone to them which could continue to highlight our wetlands and
waterways. See the Environment Australia web site at www.ea.gov.au/events
I will certainly be utilising these dates as
opportunities to increase the awareness and appreciation of our wetlands and
waterways and the wildlife of these areas, I hope others will
Good idea Peter.
