  Winter Quarterly
WHEN: January 26, 2014
TIME: 9:00am - 1:00 pm
WHERE: Dudley Park
 (E. Broad St Entrance)


After a brief orientation complete with light breakfast and coffee, volunteers will go to various stream sites in the Athens
area where you will monitor for biological, bacterial, and chemical water quality. No experience needed.
Just dress to get wet and dirty.

UOWN uses the information collected to track the health of our streams and detect water quality issues.
The results are shared with local and state organizations. This is a great way to put in some outdoor
volunteer time and learn water quality testing procedures.

Upcoming Events
River Rendezvous: Saturday April 12, 2014
Summer Quarterly: Sunday July 13, 2014
Fall Quarterly Sunday: October 12, 2014

Mission: The Upper Oconee Watershed is dedicated to protecting water resources and improving stream health in our watershed through community-based advocacy, monitoring, and education.

UOWN is dedicated to promoting citizen awareness of local water resource issues and advocating sound watershed management practices.

We seek opportunities to use our monitoring data to influence water resource policy and local land use decisions, including:

- Compiling data summary reports
- Meeting with regulatory officials concerning problem sites
- Commenting on proposed water source legislation
- Submitting newspaper articles and letters






Please join the UOWN discussion group to receive updates about all of our upcoming activities.
