Celebrate water this week

Know Your H2O is the slogan for Canada Water Week 2015, a celebration of water held annually in the third week of March.

It is vitally important to know your water these days and to do what you have to know your watershed.

Mid Vancouver Island Habitat Enhancement Society (MVIHES) volunteer stewards are getting to know their Englishman River watershed in our program, “Watershed Health and You,” through awareness, monitoring, assessment and restoration.

To find out more about the program, please visit our display at city hall in Parksville outside the library, during the week of March 16. Maybe you will feel inspired to get involved or even start your own program in your watershed.
