Alabama Public TV: Spotlight on Water!

The Auburn University College of Agriculture has been asked to partner with Alabama Public Television (APT) to develop a series of four one-hour-long episodes that highlight various projects and research related to natural resources and agriculture in Alabama. AWW will be featured during a 15-minute segment in the first episode of the series that is focused on environmental stewardship and water. We are excited to have the opportunity to share what our volunteers do with a broader audience and we hope it will generate some new interest in the AWW Program!
