Plethora of events - which to choose?

There's nothing happening for ages and then there are so many events you don't know which ones to highlight, especially when they are all so deserving.
Last week there were four national weeks and one international day.

We featured National Parks week on our blog on 28 July (read it here) and that tied in with World Ranger Day on Friday (this one is here)
We also touched on Marine Week when we posted information about seagrass meadows in an article from Dorset Wildlife Trust from the last Focus edition (here)  we have included so much more but as the last focus featured marine and coastal environments we thought we'd probably sent enough watery information your way recently so kept to just the one mention.
and that was enough for one week.

So what did we miss:
Love Parks Week, Run by the Tidy Britain group
We’re raising awareness of the importance of parks and green spaces. Love Parks Week (24 July - 2 August 2015) is now in its ninth year and is a platform for thousands of park lovers to join forces in the UK’s largest celebration of green spaces.

National Countryside Week organised by The Prince's Countryside Fund
National Countryside Week is our annual awareness campaign to celebrate the British countryside and the people who live and work in our rural areas.
This year our campaign celebrates the Fund’s achievements in its first five years and the unsung heroes making a real difference to the health of our countryside.

We've also kept quiet about the CLA Game Fair which was held last weekend and had some lively debates, particularly those featuring shooting and moorland management (and we'll leave that there...!)

And this week? 
How about watermelon day or did you know today is Particularly Preposterous Packaging Day.
