Choose a conservation project to protect the water supplies in your area in honor of August – Water Quality Month.
A Den could take a short hike around the meeting place, picking up trash so it doesn’t get washed down the gutter and into the local waters. Take note of any warning signs posted on curbs about where rain water (and trash) drains into the water from storm drains.
If there are no warnings posted on the curb near storm drains, you might take that on as a Pack service project. Go to: www.dnr.state.md.us/education/pdfs/wetactivities.pdf or check with local government or Project WET in your area for information about how to participate.
