Ways To Get Involved
First, its important to remember anyone can use The Water Map - it is a public repository . . . which means, anyone can see your submission . . . and you might learn about others working near you on similar efforts . . . this also means, anything you share can be seen by others, so please keep this in mind . . .
- If you want to do more than just explore the map, you can make a submission. First, decide what type of submission you want to make. . .
- A favorite water source - let us know about your favorite watery place
- A water story - get your story ready, and then visit this form to upload your story and/or picture to the interactive map
- A watery relationship - tell us about your important watery relationships - perhaps draw a map of your water world, and upload it to the interactive map - submissions of all kinds welcome (from drawings to poems to film links)
- A water organization - do you have a community group that focuses on water or wetland clean-ups, for example? Perhaps you are part of a water-based sports team? There are so many ways that organizations, groups or individuals engage with and value water and our map is a place for you to share your efforts with, love for, and/or ways of engaging with our local water sources/bodies.
- Maybe you are hosting a water-focused event or intervention (i.e., a beach or river cleanup), our map is one place to share these efforts.
- A water sample (in the bottle of your choosing) for the physical exhibit - NB: THIS FEATURE WILL BE COMING SOON, ONCE COVID RELATED PHYSICAL DISTANCING IS NO LONGER ADVISED - in the meantime, you can submit you intention to submit a physical sample online by going to the form
No matter what type of submission you want to make, you will need to start with this form.
