Be an H20 Hero—Pick up a Watershed Community Calendar
The 2012 calendar features stunning watershed photography from local photographers Marc Akemann, Keith Matz and Ted Nelson and 12 months of tips for protecting the Huron River.
This year, Huron River Watershed Council and the community sponsors are asking calendar recipients to participate in an online survey. The survey will help us evaluate our past education efforts and will set the direction for our future outreach programming throughout the watershed. We hope to learn what watershed residents know about preventing water pollution.
Get your calendar for free from HRWC.
Pick one up M-F, 9am-5pm at the NEW Center, 1100 N. Main Street, Ann Arbor.

One hundred seconds to midnight. That's how close humanity is to the apocalypse, and it's as close as the world has ever been, according to Wednesday's annual announcement from the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, a group that has been running its "Doomsday Clock" since the early years of the nuclear age in 1947.

The majority of Americans are stressed, sleep-deprived and overweight and suffer from largely preventable lifestyle diseases such as heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. Being overweight or obese contributes to the 50% of adults who suffer high blood pressure, 10% with diabetes and additional 35% with pre-diabetes. And the costs are unaffordable and growing. About 90% of the nearly $4 trillion Americans spend annually for health care in the U.S. is for chronic diseases and mental health conditions. But there are new lifestyle "medicines" that are free that doctors could be prescribing for all their patients.
Taking an unconventional approach to conduct the largest-ever poll on climate change, the United Nations' Development Program and the University of Oxford surveyed 1.2 million people across 50 countries from October to December of 2020 through ads distributed in mobile gaming apps.
