Partner Spotlight
River Basin Center

The River Basin Center has been a valuable TRBN partner since 2015. The organization is a group of scientists, lawyers and educators (among other things) from the University of Georgia who have teamed up to use research to promote sustainable management of the world’s rivers, lakes and streams—and everything that lives in them!

Although affiliated with the Odum School of Ecology, it is known for an interdisciplinary approach; its members are drawn from units across the University of Georgia. Dr. Ducan Elkins, a former post-doc at the River Center, and current TRBN Steering Committee member, shares more about the River Basin Center and why he and this organization participates in our Network.
