An Augusta environmental research nonprofit has a new name.

Southeastern Natural Sciences Academy changed its name to Phinizy Center for Water Sciences to better emphasize its primary research and education areas, according to a news release from the organization.

“This new name encompasses dedication to the mission of using unbiased science to find solutions for water quality issues and providing water-based environmental education,” the nonprofit said.

Southeastern Natural Sciences Academy was founded in 1996. Its research focuses on water use and quality.

The research center is based at Phinizy Swamp Nature Park off Lock and Dam Road in Augusta. It monitors rivers in multiple areas of the southeast.
