The 11th Annual Watershed Gala and Holman Water Quality Stewardship Award presentation are set for Thursday, February 28, 2019! The Watershed Gala is held annually to celebrate good water quality still being measured in many rivers, lakes and streams across the upper Hiwassee River watershed and to recognize those who work to sustain it! The event is also the Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition’s largest fundraiser. We hope you will join us for a delightful evening of food, laughter, and fun and to help honor the 2019 Holman Water Quality Stewardship Award winner!
