Water celebrated at Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation
Sunday was World Water Day.
Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation Executive Director Erinn Lawrie says because we live on the shores of Lake Huron, freshwater is something that we tend to take for granted.
Lawrie says World Water Day is an opportunity to remind ourselves of just how lucky we are to live, work and play on the shoreline of one of the Great Lakes and how important water is to all of us.
“We have twenty per cent of the world’s freshwater. It’s the drinking water source for millions of people, so I think that all of us in Ontario and on the shores of the Great Lakes, we have a really big responsibility to the rest of the world to take care of that precious resource,” Lawrie pointed out.
“So it’s great to remember and just focus on the importance of freshwater, especially us, we live, work and plan on the shoreline of Lake Huron and it’s a good reminder, especially during this difficult time, just how important water is to all of us.”
