March Monitoring Madness

index_basketballAs a loud and proud alumnus of San Diego State University, this is an incredibly exciting time for me.  Our beloved Aztecs are headed into the Sweet 16 with ambitions of a final four appearance and dare I say national championship.  I’ve been an avid fan of SDSU basketball since I moved here nine years ago, and while I’ve always been proud to be a part of the program (three time fan of the games a student . . . no big deal), this year is already a huge success for us.

Needless to say, this March has been the bees knees.  And to top it all off, I’m also super excited to kick of our 2011 World Water Monitoring Program with the hope that this year will be better than ever. . .just like our boys in black and red.

But we need help.  We need teachers and educators, from anywhere in San Diego County, to organize your class to help us gather data from around the county.  We’ll provide you free water quality testing kits, help you choose a location (inland or coastal), and provide you with info on all the parameters you test for.  We’ll even submit your data to the global WWMD program.

It’s a great way for students to learn about San Diego water quality and how they can help to improve our local environment. You’re also helping out the global campaign to protect our waterways.  With your help, we may even win the coveted Water Champion Award.
