Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory

Established in 1933, Coweeta is located in a 5,700-acre basin, where watershed and forest ecology are studied. Connected to the Forest Service's Southern Research Station, this unit's mission is to explain and predict how water, soil, and forest resources respond to management practices, natural disturbances, and the atmospheric environment. Hundreds of scientists and students conduct research at Coweeta.

The office is located about 10 miles south of Franklin off U.S. 441, then 3.2 miles west on Coweeta Lab Road.
