Did you know that you can make a big difference in how safe our lakes are to swim and fish in?  Yes you!  Every person, young or old, can help keep pollution out of the water.  By using what you have learned in school, at home, and on this website, you can take action.  Teaching other people around you what protects water and what pollutes it also makes a big difference.

Not only do you have an important role to play right now, you are our future scientists, researchers, land owners, teachers and voters.  What you decide to do your science and art projects on this semester could open your eyes to a world that needs your knowledge and your talent.  So read up!  Know the facts, speak up, and get moving!
