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!
- 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.
- 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!
