Georgia is blessed with a diversity of natural resources. From the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the north, to the black water creeks in the south, to the estuarine habitats on the coast, Georgia’s aquatic ecological diversity rivals that of any state. Georgia is also one of the fastest growing states in America and this growth comes at an environmental price. Now more than ever, citizens in the state of Georgia must accept responsibility to help protect and preserve our existing greenspaces while helping to remediate already impacted systems. Georgia Adopt-A-Stream can help. Concerned citizens interested in learning about, protecting and preserving their streams, lakes, and wetlands can make a difference by participating in Adopt-A-Stream activities. Specific field demonstrations include watershed wide monitoring events, amphibian, lake and coastal wetland monitoring, citizen-based activities targeting urban watersheds, conservation practices that home owners can implement, and resources for connecting with students (K-12).
