Launched in April 2015, Watershed UGA is a town & gown stream restoration and protection initiative spearheaded by the Odum School of Ecology and the Office of Sustainability with funding from the Ray C. Anderson Foundation. Many campus participants have contributed to the watershed planning activities associated with the initiative, including the Warnell School of Forestry, the College of Environment and Design, the Grounds Department of Facilities Management and the Office of University Architects for Facilities Planning.
The goal of Watershed UGA is to exponentially increase campus and community awareness of and involvement in stream restoration, while building social infrastructure to tackle other sustainability issues through the three land-grant missions: academics, research, and service.
Our Mission is to restore the health of tributary streams to the Oconee River – our main water source – with the involvement of all those interested in helping.
