Water's Caretaker – You!

Why Designate a Year of Water?

The Freshwater Society and partners want to raise the awareness among citizens about our water resources and how we can protect them in our everyday lives. We are providing education resources as well as activities for taking action to protect our lakes, rivers, streams, wetlands and groundwater. From snow and ice to lakes and rivers, we will be covering six water topics in twelve months! Check back here frequently as we will be posting new information all year long.



It’s up to each of us to do our part for clean water. Learn about 10 simple ways that you can make a difference! Kids of the future will love you for it and you can be proud of the clean water legacy you leave for generations to come.
