Make a splash with Washington Water Weeks
NW News Staff
Now in its 14th year in Washington State, WaterWeeks is a month-long water awareness and involvement program made up of more than 125 community and regional events statewide beginning Sept. 1 and running through Oct. 5. The events help people experience, appreciate and take action to protect our state's shorelands, waterways, rivers, lakes and watersheds. The goal of WaterWeeks is to get residents, young and old, involved in fun local events and connect them with organizations that can help them become year-round stewards.
The WaterWeeks Activity Guide is a complete listing of WaterWeeks events and activities planned by community organizations and volunteers. Organized regionally and chronologically, the guide is an excellent source for news and feature stories, briefs, calendars, and weekend sections. With each event, you'll find a contact name, organization and phone number. Copies of the free guide are available at REI stores, state parks, libraries, museums, visitor and convention bureaus, and other locations across the state, or by calling (800) 424-4EPA.
