As the world celebrates World Water Day on March 22, you can do your part in protecting our water locally by joining the BGGS Water Action Team. In 2021, the Water Action Team spearheaded a flood cleanup along Hinkston Creek in Carlisle. Volunteers from BGGS, the Carlisle community, and the University of Cincinnati removed enough flood debris to fill 2 large dumpsters.

In 2022 the Water Team will facilitate two stream cleanups, support local and regional watershed management efforts, and begin to serve as a resource for coordinating, sharing, and supporting local/regional initiatives and educational opportunities.

You can make a positive change in the Bluegrass Region by joining the Water Team and helping us meet our ambitious goals for 2022. If you are interested in join our Water Action Team, email Jadyn Hughes for more info!
