Dr. Jack Turner, director of the Watershed Ecology Center,
was recently recognized by Upstate Forever as a Clean Water
Champion during the Sixth Annual ForeverGreen Awards Luncheon which celebrates individuals and organizations for significant contributions in the fields of land conservation, water quality, air quality, sustainable development, waste reduction, public service and volunteer work.
Since the creation of the Watershed Ecology Center in 1999,
Turner has been educating children – and adults – about the
need to be good stewards of the environment and its resources.
The outreach efforts he and WEC staff continue to promote have
reached nearly 70,000 in Spartanburg County.
