The Protect Wisconsin Waterways crew had a successful event at the 2018 Janesville Sustainable Living Fair! We were interviewed by 103.5 WADR radio station about the mission of our organization. We capitalized on this great Public Relations opportunity.
Our representatives engaged with citizens and families who share a common interest in sustainable practices. It was exciting to show people the adverse effects of stormwater and what they could do around their home to prevent stormwater pollution.
This was the first event our mascot, Splash attended! There was a very positive response to the new addition to our team, especially with the children. We used the Enviroscape to show event attendees the many factors that affect stormwater. Children and families saw a short presentation on the Enviroscape and were encouraged to move to the coloring station and sign our pledges as a family.
