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.
Or go to the customer service desk at the following community locations:

Toxic Waste Will Continue to Grow for Decades Even if All U.S. Drilling and Fracking Halts Today, New Report Says
By Jessica Corbett
For more than three decades, the U.S. government has mismanaged toxic oil and gas waste containing carcinogens, heavy metals and radioactive materials, according to a new Earthworks report — and with the country on track to continue drilling and fracking for fossil fuels, the advocacy group warns of growing threats to the planet and public health.
Newly adopted guidelines set forth by the European Commission Tuesday aim to tackle climate change by way of the financial sector. The move comes to bolster the success of the Sustainable Action Plan published last year to reorient capital flows toward sustainable investment and manage financial risks from climate change, environmental degradation and social issues.
