The Cache La Poudre Watershed covers 1,000 square miles of land and supports about 330,000 people. At home car washes can degrade the health of our watersheds. That’s why Emma decided to take action! To spread awareness over her concern and to educate the community, she developed an educational video that she was able to share on social media. It gained over 300 views! The City of Fort Collins Utilities shared her project on their social media sites as well. As an added incentive she embedded her own contest for three people to win a car washing gift card for a year that was generously donated by Breeze Thru Car Wash. Viewers entered the contest by using her hashtag #WaterShedWash. The winners were selected and now have a chance to improve their watershed.
