This is a cocopeat filter, which could offer a sustainable option for water filtration in cities. Wastewater is passed through, trapping suspended solids.

The 16th Annual Backyard Bird Count will be held Friday, February 15 through Monday, February 18.
It’s fun, free, easy, and every checklist submitted helps ornithologists at Cornell University and the National Audubon Society learn more about birds and the environment.
If you’d like to participate, please visit BirdSource, where you can download a checklist to use, view results from past counts, and print a free poster with images of commonly seen birds of North America!
