It's Water-Wise Wednesday with Frannie the Fish! {The Groundwater Foundation National Conference Workshop}

The Groundwater Foundation is turning 30 this year!  This is an exciting time, as we not only look back on all that has been accomplished, but we also look forward to see what more can be done.  To celebrate our 30th anniversary, The Groundwater Foundation's National Conference will be held in our hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska.  In conjunction with our National Conference we are holding free workshops to further our mission of educating people and inspiring action to ensure sustainable, clean groundwater for future generations.
