Watershed UGA featured at Every Drop Counts: Managing Georgia’s Water Supply

Watershed UGA put together a part the exhibit Every Drop Counts: Managing Georgia’s Water Supply, which is being displayed at UGA’s Special Collection library this fall. Our portion of the exhibit focused on the history of and challenged facing campus watersheds, as well as strategies Watershed UGA is using to address these challenges. A couple of the panels we helped create for this exhibit can be seen below. We also put together a case focused on Lake Herrick in particular, highlighting its history and restoration strategies being proposed for this site. To celebrate the opening of this exhibit and the 20th anniversary re-dedication of the Stephen Elliot Draper Center & Archives for the Study of Water Law and Policy, the Special Collections library hosted a reception on September 17th. The reception featured comments by University Librarian Dr. Toby Graham as well as Dr. Stephen Draper. Watershed UGA Project coordinator, Katie Brownson, was also invited to participate in the ceremonial ribbon cutting. The exhibit can be seen through Dec. 16 at the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript gallery of the Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.
