WEF Creates ‘Walkway to Wetlands’ in Downtown Los Angeles

Sept. 20, 2011

Fourth annual community service event will be held as part of WEFTEC 2011

To promote environmental stewardship and leave a positive imprint on this year’s host city, the Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) Students and Young Professionals Committee has organized its fourth annual community service project, Walkway to Wetlands. Organized as a part of WEFTEC 2011, the event is scheduled for Oct. 15 in Los Angeles.

During the event, conference volunteers will plant trees along the perimeter of a constructed wetland in a former industrial area of downtown. Held in coordination with the city, the service project will provide a grand entrance to the city’s wetlands project that is located directly across the street of a brand new high school.

The annual community service program supports grassroots solutions and environmental stewardship on a local level while promoting WEF’s overall mission to preserve and enhance the global water environment. Local and WEF leadership will attend the opening ceremony to share their vision for environmental protection and community involvement and service.
