River Alliance Local Groups Director, Allison Werner recently received the Candle on the Water award by the Upper Sugar River Watershed Association (USRWA) in recognition of her service to the growing organization. “Allison was unanimously supported for the award by the USRWA Board of Directors based on her incredible work helping to craft a 5-year strategic plan for the organization and going well beyond the call of duty to make the process smooth,” says Wade Moder, USRWA executive director.

Allison is honored to receive the award and has really enjoyed helping the organization become an established watershed group. “Every group I work with is different, which is what makes this work so interesting, but one thing they all share is a unique passion for their home river and that’s what inspires me every day,” says Allison.

Allison is a great asset to all of the local river and watershed organizations in the state. Is your local group looking for help? Browse our online library of resources for local groups or contact Allison at awerner (at)
