Encourage users to care for the watersheds through recreational activities.
UGA Watershed is a town & gown initiative to involve UGA campus and Athens community in restoring our streams. We are transforming these streams into a living laboratory through teaching, research, and service.
Our goal is to promote the care of our watersheds through recreation and fun. Water running through the University of Georgia’s watersheds flow into the lakes and rivers you kayak, hike next to, and swim in. The four watersheds on campus are not easily seen and often overlooked. Partnered with Vestigo and the Watershed UGA initiative, we are bringing the watersheds to “light” by attracting the Athens community to enjoy, learn about, and care for the watersheds.
