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 Week
March 22:    World Day for Water: Water for the Future
October 19 - 25:  National Water Week
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
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 too.
Good idea Peter.
