Be an H20 Hero—Pick up a Watershed Community Calendar

Be an H20 Hero—Pick up a Watershed Community Calendar

Huron River Watershed Council

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.

Everything we need to survive comes from the forest: food, medicines, building materials, and there are many sacred sites in the forest.
