Georgia Water Coalition's
Capitol Conservation Day
You are invited to join the Georgia Water Coalition on Wednesday, February 19, 2014, for Capitol Conservation Day. Capitol Conservation Day is an opportunity for all Georgian's to gather at the Capitol to tell our state representatives and senators that we value water for our families, economy, health, and future generations.
Capitol Conservation Day begins at 8:30am across the street from the Capitol at the Central Presbyterian Church for a breakfast buffet. Beginning at 9am, Georgia Water Coalition leaders will tell you about the most timely and important water legislation and how to connect with your legislators in the Capitol. Afterward, we will move to the Capitol for a group photo and meet with our legislators to talk about why clean water is important to us.
The Georgia Water Coalition is offering assistance in arranging carpools from across the state. If you are interested in carpool options, please note how many people are in your party during registration.
Please consider wearing the color green on Capitol Conservation Day to show solidarity with the Georgia Water Coalition.
