UB Students to take chilly plunge into Long Island Sound for World Wetlands Day

Bridgeport, CT, January 29, 2019 – Are you bold enough—bold enough that is to take a frosty dip in Long Island Sound at 8 a.m. on Friday, February 1, along with students from the University of Bridgeport?

The fourth annual plunge into the frigid water is not a result of bored students acting on a dare. This event and others taking place around the world are honoring the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands that took place on February 2, 1971, on the shores of the Caspian Sea. World Wetlands day was first celebrated in 1997.
