Our first day of spring yesterday included a little rain, not exactly the norm around here, but very welcome after a very dry winter. And today is World Water Day! This is a good heads-up for our April focus on environmental actions that often involve contamination of ground water.
You can learn more about water issues at this UN site
which includes slideshows, videos and animations, and this site gives directions to World Water Day events including a Water Walk in Santa Monica on Saturday. Water Partners International has more information including curriculum ideas.
And just for kicks, I've changed our blog musical accompaniment --see sidebar-- to Aguas de Marcos. (If this version makes you nostalgic for the original, visit here or here.)
