2013 Poster Contest
The 2013 NJ Conservation Poster Contest has been announced, and the theme is “Where Does Your Water Shed?” The water on Earth is one of our most precious resources. There is a limited amount of fresh water, yet it must be balanced with our many needs for clean and plentiful water. Water takes various forms in the environment, and it is used over and over again by plants, animals, and people as it moves through the water cycle. We can influence what happens in a watershed (for good or for bad) by how we treat our natural resources-including soil, water, air, plants and animals. It is important to understand where fresh water goes after it rains and after we use it in our daily routine, so that we can use it wisely today and enjoy this precious resource for generations to come.
