The Iowa Flood Center is a proud sponsor of Project AWARE (A Watershed Awareness River Expedition). This year’s Project AWARE will take place on the Maquoketa River, starting in Manchester and traveling 63 miles over the six-day long event.

Iowa Project AWARE aims to:
- Increase awareness about, and community involvement in, water quality issues that impact the health of Iowa’s aquatic resources.
- Engage Iowa’s citizen volunteers in a project that challenges them to become stewards of the river and produces a tangible, quantitative result.
- Demonstrate the commitment of Iowa’s citizens by giving of themselves and their valuable time to make a difference – one stretch of river, one piece of trash at a time.
