AWG sponsored the creation of a mini-library to support the Alpine County Library and Friends of the Library. Our 2016-2017 AmeriCorps Member Aly Cheney, built the watershed-themed library. You can find it in front of our office in Woodfords. We are very excited about this project, and hope to collect books about water, the outdoors, and other ecological topics. If you have a favorite book, please consider donating it or adding it to our wish list. Contact us with a book recommendation or for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or (530) 694-2327. Thank you!

AWG Support for Diamond Valley Advanced Learner Program
Our 2017-2018 AmeriCorps Member Julia Keane worked with Principal Dr. Scott Smith at Diamond Valley School to forge a new relationship between Alpine Watershed Group and the Advanced Learner Program. Julia presented watershed topics through hands-on activities, field trips, and educational presentations to the after school program once a month. Students learned about the positive impact watershed stewardship has on the community.
Bioassessment Stream Summary
Here is an update on what AWG staff and volunteers have been working on within the Upper Carson River watershed in regards to our bioassessment surveys and California Stream Condition Index (CSCI). Check out our report on the conditions of Markleeville Creek!
The map to the right marks the four bioassessment sites.
With the help of our 2017-2018 AmeriCorps members, AWG developed fact sheets that provide a concise and comprehensive glimpse into all of our programs. We use these brochures at community events as a tool for recruiting new volunteers.
