When we hear of nutrients, we might think of nourishment, food, growth, and good health.
But when it comes to our natural springs and rivers, too many nutrients is not a good thing at all.
As the human population grows and builds, fertilizers and chemicals from our lawns run down into our groundwater, rivers and springs and cause excessive growth of algae in our natural waters. This abundance of algae blocks out the sunlight from the plant life below causing the vegetation to die off and the underwater wildlife that depends on it to starve. As a result, all of the wildlife that depends on fish for food is also affected.
Join us to have a good time and to learn about our most precious resource— our WATER!

From the aquifer beneath our feet, to our natural springs and rivers, and even to the faucets in our homes, our sources of fresh water are becoming increasingly threatened. It is now time to raise awareness and start working together to protect this vital resource—our natural waters.
