March 22nd is World Water Day! This year especially, we are remembering how important clean water is to sanitation and health. Check out ways you can help in your community.
Celebrate World Water Day by planting a tree! Trees help purify our water, reduce erosion, control flooding, and absorb greenhouse gasses. Pick up a Loblolly Pine seedling at Fishtowne Brew House in Beaufort, NC. They are open for growler fills 5-7 pm Thursday-Sunday.
Tree planting is a great way to practice social distancing while protecting clean water. If you can’t make it in person, visit our website to learn more about our Coastal Habitat Restoration Program and other ways you can get involved in protecting clean water.
