Please consider joining us for the 2018 Alabama Water Watch Annual Meeting on June 23 in Auburn, AL. If you are not familiar with Alabama Water Watch (AWW) and the work of our volunteers, the Annual Meeting will be a great opportunity to learn more about our program and work around Alabama. AWW is a citizen volunteer water quality monitoring program, and our goal is to empower citizens through environmental education and training so that they can collect and use their own water data to protect and restore water quality. This year’s Annual Meeting will feature talks from AWW Volunteer Monitors, Volunteer Trainers, 4-H AWW (representatives from our youth volunteer program!) and Monitoring Groups that highlight why they got involved with Alabama Water Watch, how they stay motivated in their water monitoring, and why it is important for others to consider getting involved with water-based citizen science and watershed stewardship. We will also host several individuals from our Global Water Watch program who will speak on their involvement in improving water quality through public education and volunteer monitoring. In addition, we will be joined by a board member of the Citizen Science Association, who will speak on her experience and the importance of citizen science. At the end of the meeting, Dr. William Deutsch, AU Research Fellow Emeritus and founder of Alabama Water Watch, will premiere his new book, Alabama Rivers, A Celebration and Challenge. Alabama Rivers will be available for sale at Annual Meeting, and Dr. Deutsch will be there to sign copies. Please join us and spread the word about Annual Meeting to anyone else who you think might be interested!
