Rivers to Oceans Week, beginning World Oceans Day June 8 and encompassing Canadian Rivers Day June 12, is fast approaching and the Canadian Wildlife Federation is celebrating with the Water’s Worth It! video contest. The contest is your opportunity to celebrate the water that makes Canada special and to make a real difference in the health of your local water body.
We invite individual members or a team from your group or organization send us a one-minute video telling us what’s so special about your local body of water and why it’s worth conserving. If you win, CWF will contribute $2,000 in funding towards a water-conservation project in your area. We are accepting entries from May 1 until June 1, 2011, with online voting at RiverstoOceans.ca during Rivers to Oceans Week (June 8 to 14) to choose the winner.
Visit RiverstoOceans.ca for a variety of water-related resources including lesson plans, water ecology videos and information about Canadian aquatic species. Does your group or organization have a Rivers to Oceans Week event you want to promote? You can list it on our Rivers to Oceans Week Event Map. Check back often to find out about water-related events and activities happening across the country.
