Outreach Programs

The outreach initiatives of the Center for Watershed Excellence reflect the Center's vision to involve Clemson University faculty and students in statewide watershed research and education programs that support the development and implementation of community-based, cost-effective watershed management programs. The success of projects like those listed below, will encourage growth of local stakeholder groups working toward sustainable natural resources within their watershed.
