The Watershed Ecology
Center's mission is to collect, analyze, and disseminate sound scientific
information on the ecology of the region. Special emphasis is placed on
watershed conservation, education, water quality and the study of organisms
living in the area encompassed by a watershed. The Center serves as a
repository for regional ecological information, providing education and research
assistance to individuals, communities, local schools and governmental
organizations. The WEC is also dedicated to providing research opportunities
for the faculty and students at the University of South Carolina Upstate and
other regional institutions.
