Save The Date – World Water Monitoring Day – October 18, 2004
From September 18 to October 18, Girl Scouts and citizens throughout the world community will have an opportunity to monitor the quality of their local watersheds and enter the results of their efforts into an international database. Then, on October 18, we will celebrate World Water Monitoring Day together. World Water Monitoring Day serves as a global educational platform for watershed leaders, educators and trained volunteers to help those who are less experienced better understand how the actions of individuals in a watershed can impact many others. Water monitoring test kits are available to purchase and troops and groups may register online at www.worldwatermonitoringday.org . For further information, please contact Ed Moyer, World Water Monitoring Day Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 202-746-8493.
