The ATLAS Project is looking for contributors for a brand new project being launched to celebrate the local Spring Creek Watershed.

Teachers can turn it into a class project, scientists can create something for it as an extension of their work, outdoor enthusiasts can create work based on their favorite locations, and of course artists are invited to create and share.

The Atlas group is hopeful that this project provides a vehicle for people of all ages to explore the watershed, study it in their own way, and create something to be featured on the ART page to share with others.

About

The Atlas Project is a public outreach and educational service of the Spring Creek Watershed Commission located in Centre County, Pennsylvania. Our mission is to inform the public about the environment of the Spring Creek Watershed, its waters, its ecosystems, its challenges, and how the human population is affecting it.

We are adding a new segment to the Atlas home page to celebrate the watershed and it’s various uses by hosting a collection of art about the watershed.
