Earth Day 2011 Celebrated at Union Point

The Less Means More Water Conservation Task Force is gearing up for Earth Day 2011. This Craven County water conservation initiative has been active since since 2005. On April 11-13, we'll host 5th graders from the Craven County Schools at Union Point Park where 5 educational stations will teach students aboout water systems, water conservation tips for inside, water conservation tips for outside, water quality, and composting. We're proud to partner with others as we work to create a culture of conservation in Craven County. On April 15, we'll recognize the businesses and organizations who practice conservation. Visit for a nomination form. Let's get serious about conservation and help plan for a better future.
