The Port Orford Ocean Resource Team and the Surfrider Foundation invite you to share their vision of protecting our water as we ‘connect the drops’ from source to sea at the 3rd annual Port Orford Water Festival. April 17-18, 2010
Connecting the Drops: Land to Sea Sustainability:
What connects the highest peaks to the deepest oceans? Water. It is what nourishes our lush Oregon landscape, keeps our oceans alive, and sustains our way of life. Humans have an enormous responsibility to ensure the health of our water resource. The Port Orford Ocean Resource Team and the Surfrider Foundation invite you to share our vision of protecting our water as we ‘connect the drops’ from source to sea at the Port Orford Water Festival.
Goals of the Water Festival:
- Create an awareness of human’s everyday impact and connectivity to the watershed and ocean environment
- Demonstrate the land-sea connection
- Display current research being conducted in the watershed and ocean through partners and agencies
- Provide opportunities to engage the Port Orford community and beyond in the work of the Port Orford Ocean Resource Team and partner organizations
- Help promote a healthy and positive “ocean ethic” for our community
