“We all live downstream from one another.” These are wise words spoken by Alexandra Cousteau, RBC Blue Water Ambassador and globally recognized explorer and water advocate that embody the spirit of Evergreens Watershed programming.

This year, students across the country have taken on inspirational projects to ensure the health of their local watershed through hands-on learning, stewardship and restoration, and raising awareness about water issues by finding creative ways to connect with communities near and afar.  

Evergreen is proud to announce the recipients of the 2015 RBC-Evergreen Watershed Champions Award, which recognizes schools for their role in helping to sustain their local watershed.
