Iowa Project AWARE
A Watershed Awareness River Expedition
Project AWARE is for anyone who isn't afraid to get a little dirt under their fingernails. While most of your time is spent in a canoe or kayak, you are still fully immersed in the wilderness and eventually you’re bound to get dirty. Prepare to find mud in awkward places and potentially stinky things in your canoe. Most people find this aspect appealing; remembering the days when they were just kids playing in the mud...
Iowa Project AWARE aims to:
- Increase awareness about, and community involvement in, water quality issues that impact the health of Iowa's aquatic resources.
- Engage Iowa's citizen volunteers in a project that challenges them to become stewards of the river and produces a tangible, quantitative result.
- Demonstrate the commitment of Iowa's citizens by giving of themselves and their valuable time to make a difference - one stretch of river, one piece of trash at a time.
