Athens Water Festival

On September 10th, Watershed UGA participated in the 7th annual Athens Water Festival in collaboration with EcoReach, which is an environmental education outreach organization run by graduate students in the Odum School of Ecology. The theme for this year’s event was drinking water, so we helped organize an activity designed to help children get to know local stream macroinvertebrates and understand the role they play in keeping our water clean. There were at least 800 people in attendance at this year’s festival!
