At the Chino Creek Park, World Water Day was a huge success thanks to SAWA!!
SAWA facilitated two World Water Day events at the park on March 21, 2012 & March 23, 2012. A total of 170 girls from Girl Scouts of the U.S.A participated in the event to earn their water badge. The event featured hands-on activities; Water Experiments, “Made of Water” activity, Water Pledge, Snake Encounter and a Park Scavenger Hunt.
Thank you to all the Girl Scout Troops that participated in World Water Day at the Chino Creek Wetlands and Educational Park!
World Water Day has been observed on 22 March since 1993 when the United Nations General Assembly declared 22 March as World Day for Water.
There are 7 billion people to feed on the planet today and another 2 billion are expected to join by 2050. Statistics say that each of us drinks from 2 to 4 liters of water every day, however most of the water we ‘drink’ is embedded in the food we eat: producing 1 kilo of beef for example consumes 15,000 liters of water while 1 kilo of wheat ’drinks up’ 1,500 litres.
