May Watershed Awareness Month
Throughout the month of May, watershed partnerships, educators, and other community groups are encouraged to promote the importance of watersheds and stewardship at
the grassroots and community levels by organizing and participating in watershed awareness activities. To celebrate Watershed Awareness Month, participants can take part
in watershed walks, project field tours, water quality monitoring, streamside cleanups, and other activities already taking place in their watersheds – or they can organize
an event of their own.
Start planning your events now and check back soon for the May 2007 Watershed Event Calendar for the State!

Encourage your county to declare May 2007 as Watershed Awareness Month. Here's a sample proclamation.
CWN launched California’s first annual Watershed Awareness Month in May 2005. This awareness campaign was supported by Governor Schwarzenegger through a proclamation. Throughout the month of May, volunteer community organizations, educators, and other groups are encouraged to promote the importance of watersheds at the grassroots and community levels by organizing and conducting watershed awareness activities. CWN developed a special calendar of events to promote all of the activities planned for May Watershed Awareness Month.
