The American Water Resources organization recently named the SIUC group as its most "Outstanding Student Chapter" in country. Dr. Karl Williard, Professor of Forestry, said the club's success stems from the energy, enthusiasm, and commitment from club members. Each year, the club plans several hands-on projects throughout the year. Williard states, "They've spent a lot of time performing watershed education programs with middle school students, Girls Scouts, and the community at large... This has provided some great hands-on learning opportunities for undergraduate students who are interested in water resources management."
