FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 7, 2001 

WATERSHED AWARENESS MONTH

            Local watershed organizations and other groups throughout Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New York are working together to have May 2002 designated as Watershed Awareness Month.  This idea of designating next May and all future months of May as Watershed Awareness Month was initiated by members of the Education and Outreach Committee at the First National Watershed Forum, which was held in June 2001 in Arlington, Virginia.

“Watershed Awareness Month would afford an excellent opportunity for volunteer and community organizations, educators and other groups to promote the importance of watersheds throughout the communities by conducting community and watershed education activities such as streamside cleanups, river festivals, land and water sojourns, just to name a few,” said Mayor Jeremy Harris.

            If you or your organization is interested in being involved in planning activities leading up to Watershed Awareness Month, please e-mail Bob Rock at rrock@co.honolulu.hi.us or call 527-5699 to participate.
