According to a recent survey, 45 million Americans (mistakenly) think the ocean is a source of fresh water. Our nation's future relies on a well-educated public to make the right choices for the sustainability of our natural resources, long-term economic success, and the overall health of our environment. Funds raised at the comedy event will support Wyland Foundation children's environmental education program at a time when education budgets are being cut across the country.
