October 18 -- a milestone in the efforts to protect our nation's water 
resources -- presents an excellent opportunity to enhance public 
appreciation of our water resources, celebrate successes, build a better

not-for-profit organization with an interest in preserving the state's 
sand dunes that are being destroyed by mining and threatened by 
development. Photo Chronology: http://www.daac.com/sosdunes/photos.html
