Water conservation makes sense for fish, wildlife lovers

An advertising campaign inspired by drought encourages California residents to landscape with native plants that need less water.  The ads also encourage people to take shorter showers and use brooms to sweep instead of hosing off driveways and sidewalks. (San Francisco Public Utilities Commission)

CONSERVATION -- The best time to practice water conservation is before we really need to.

Make it a habit.

It's not a day too soon to stop wasting water at home and as a community -- for the good of our fish, wildlife and the future of our kids.

Fishermen in particular should understand this and be active advocates.

Thanks to the people who are stepping up to make this point to the public.
