A Scavenger Hunt Through Georgia's Interconnected Water System
Water is a basic building block and necessity for all life. It is essential for agricultural, industrial, and household use for basic human health and economic development. Caring for water and water systems is vital to make sure we have enough to use to drink, grow crops, support fishing, support tourism, and mitigate storm and drought damage.
Organizations throughout Georgia have joined together to provide a way for all of us to learn how we are all connected to each other and to life-giving water. Join us for a journey (and maybe some fun prizes) around Georgia.
There are 11 unique sites. Some are entirely virtual. All can be completed online. But many stops contain information about how you can visit in-person.
Each stop is an individual Google Form, and all can be found on the passport page.
Those that complete all stops, virtually, qualify for a chance to win prizes.
Our sponsor, REI, welcomes you to register now through September 30th for a chance to win a $250 REI Co-op Gift Card
