National Student-Athlete Day

National Student-Athlete Day

Happy National Student-Athlete Day! Throughout the months of March and April the NCAA recognizes student-athletes at colleges and universities. There is a lot of devotion that goes into being both a student and an athlete so we want to applaud all the student-athletes throughout New Jersey for not only their athletic abilities but also their commitment to school. 

We want to acknowledge the colleges and universities throughout New Jersey who have produced excellent student-athletes. Some of these are Rutgers University, Princeton University, Seton Hall University, Montclair State University, Drew University, Fairleigh Dickinson University and many more!

Congratulations to all the student-athletes throughout New Jersey!

World Wetlands Day

World Wetlands Day

Happy World Wetlands Day! Throughout New Jersey there are many wetland areas that used to be considered wastelands. Wetlands contribute a lot to our environment some of their benefits are protecting our drinking water, habitat for fish and wildlife and soak off runoff for flood control. So on World Wetlands Day we need to acknowledge the wetlands in our area and make sure they are taken care of properly.

Wetlands are one of the planet’s greatest and most misunderstood natural resources. Wetlands provide priceless services, but they also provide priceless feelings. If you are passionate about wetlands, please share it with us! Join us in our #WetlandsForAll campaign! We are taking the opportunity of the World Wetlands Day on the 2nd of February to use the #WetlandsForAll campaign focusing on wetlands to raise awareness on these ecosystems. Want to participate? Tell the world how you feel in nature close to a wetland and communicate it with a photo: – Take a picture of yourself or your friends/family near a wetland – Hashtag “For Me, Nature is #(your feeling) #WetlandsForAll, #WetlandsForOurFuture and #NatureForAll ” – Post it on social media – Or just send us your pic with your sentence at info@medwet.org Thank You!
