To commemorate World Wetlands Day, the United States Embassy encourages Americans residing in Korea to do their part to protect the environment. Americans can contribute by volunteering with the Korea Wetland Project to clean up ecosystems damaged by the Dec. 7 oil spill in Taean, South Chungcheong. The project has organized two free, one-day bus trips to Taebae on the Taean Peninsula. The trip organizers will provide the following: transportation, protective gear, lunch and English-language translation service. The two trips are scheduled for Friday and Saturday.
