In this episode: Join Kay, Heather, and Carol as they honor World Water Day (March 22nd) and recall the ways we can keep our water clean and safe. Also in this episode: how to show your water the love in the activities of your daily life.

Dear Water: How do I show my love to thee? Let me count the ways. 

  1. Plant native plants 
  2. Protect storm drains: Dispose of medicines and oils properly
  3. Vacuum when it rains (no laundry please)
  4. Learn about my watershed
  5. Use less 

Keeping in mind: Everyone lives downstream from someone.
