Hurricane Katrina devastation brought by wetlands development will effect water and wetlands for centuries. Profits from WATERSONGS and WATERWAYS CD is being pledged to the American Red Cross to be shared by all victims in Louisana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
People need dollars, like Wetlands need water and Mother Nature knows
best and survives last.
