April is the month for the Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation! This is the 10th year of the Challenge presented by the Wyland Foundation and Toyota, and it is a fun and educational competition to see which cities can be the most “water wise” and win more than $50,000 in eco-friendly prizes. Simple individual actions by residents can add up to make a large impact toward protecting our environment.
Residents can participate in the Water Conservation Challenge in many ways. First, there is the traditional way of making on-line conservation pledges at www.mywaterpledge.com. Then, you can get bonus points (all year) for completing actions found on the My Volunteer Water Project tool where you can turn pledges into action! These new physical hands-on projects or actions at www.wylandfoundation.org/mywaterproject can be done in your own backyard or neighborhood and be individual or group projects.
On April 1st, join the The Wyland Foundation’s LIVE Zoom broadcast from Sarasota, Florida, at 8 am PDT to kick off the Water Challenge. Register here: Webinar Registration - Zoom. On the live broadcast, not only will marine science experts speak and teachers get ideas to involve their classes in the challenge, but also you will observe marine life artist and conservationist Wyland painting one of his marine life animal murals. These well-renowned murals can be found all over the world, and you may have seen one of his whale murals in Santa Monica on the Santa Monica Pier.
This will be Moorpark’s third year participating in the National Mayor’s Water Conservation Challenge. Although we are a small city with a population at the lower end of our category, we have ranked well and finished the last two years in the top third of approximately 600 participating similarly-sized cities. Let’s see what we can do this year!
