The River Basin Center Policy Celebration, 9/24 – 9/25

Book your hotel rooms now!

Join us on September 24-25 in Athens, Georgia, to celebrate two decades of water policy development at the UGA River Basin Center. We’ll hear from alumni, current students and friends about the past, present and future of the RBC’s policy work. We’ll also toast the contributions of Laurie Fowler, who retired as RBC Director of Policy in 2020. 

The Policy Celebration coincides with this year’s AthFest music festival, so make your reservations soon and plan to attend both! We have held hotel rooms at the Athens hotels listed below.
