In January 2015, Upstate Forever, an environmental organization in the mountain region of South Carolina, was awarded a $100,000 grant to launch a new four-year initiative, “Reconnecting People to Rivers.”

The project intends to teach citizens about area waterways through “river festivals, online resources, blueway maps of river segments and the Adopt-A-Stream volunteer water quality monitoring program.”

In the last year, the program certified 110 volunteers to lead monthly water quality sampling and share their results with residents. — Charlotte Wray
