Start dusting off your hiking or walking shoes and get them ready for World Water Day on Saturday March 22nd as we Walk for Water! Water is our most precious and finite resource that is unfortunately at risk. Whether it is droughts out West to water contamination in West Virginia; this resource is being used and abused.

On World Water Day join the New Jersey Sierra Club as we Walk for Water raising awareness about water issues locally and globally. We will be highlighting issues we are facing in our state and the issues facing the over 780 million people around the world who lack access to clean water. We will be walking along the Delaware & Raritan Canal, a waterway that is at risk of fracking and is a water resource for many in the state. The beautiful 3 mile hike will signify the average distance someone in the developed world walks to get their water.

This is a great event to get outdoors and celebrate this precious natural resource, while learning about what is threatening it and how to protect it.

PLEASE carpool if you can since parking is limited.
