Saturday was New York Cares Day!!!  What an excellent day in which we actually inserted a CSL demonstration!  My biggest feedback was for us to allow Columbia to build this into other future events that may be taking place near water.

After attending the CSL training day I spoke to a group of colleagues about what I'd learnt.

I then went on to say how they could get involved with fresh water watch and where they could find more information.

 

I am hoping to have some of them sign up for csl training in the future so it won't be the last talk I give at work.
