Happy Ground Hog Day!

February 2nd is also Happy World Wetlands Day!

  • So it’s perfect timing for Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel to announce the Top 5 "Wetlands Are Wonderful" posters that he’ll showcase on WRAL-TV 5 the week of March 2-6, 2015 during the 5 o’clock News. Congratulations to Kaeleigh, Natalie, Luke, Emily, and Jennifer — your posters have TV star appeal! Many thanks to Greg for coordinating this prime-time spotlight!
  1. See the schedule for which poster will be shown each day of the week. NOTE: Winter weather, severe weather and breaking news can pre-empt our posters from being shown.
  2. Visit the World Wetlands Day website of The Ramsar Convention, an international organization that encourages wise use of wetlands and intergovernmental cooperation on wetland issues. http://www.worldwetlandsday.org/ Make a wetland pledge, download teaching materials, and if you’re age 15-24…you can enter a wetland photo contest for a chance to win a flight to a wetland anywhere on Earth! Enter between February 2-March 2. Good luck!
