Alabama Watershed Steward Training in Pepperell Branch Watershed (Opelika, AL)

1001 Andreews Road, 1001 Andrews Road, Opelika, AL 36801

A watershed is an area of land through which rainwater drains by flowing across, through, or under the soil surface to a common low point, typically a stream, river, lake, or ocean. Stewardship means taking the responsibility to care for the well-being of something that is valued. Watershed stewardship is for everyone and all are welcome, we all live in a watershed and depend on its valuable resources. Join us to learn more about protecting and restoring Alabama’s resources including our abundant water resources ranging from fast-flowing mountain streams to large, lazy rivers to picturesque coastlines.

The Alabama Watershed Stewards (AWS) is a science-based educational program that promotes healthy watersheds, increases understanding of water pollution, and provides the knowledge and tools needed to prevent and resolve local water quality problems.
