Adopt-A-Stream is a program that promotes environmental stewardship through training workshops, outdoor field activities and by introducing participants to watershed action projects.
The one-day workshop places emphasis on your particular watershed and its needs. The program provides a basic study of your watershed as well as hands-on training in chemical and biological parameters important to a healthy stream.
In addition, the workshop will:
- Increase awareness of nonpoint source pollution
- Introduce surveying and mapping of your watershed
- Increase watershed protection awareness and possible actions that can be taken to help your watershed. It Begins at Home is a new program with ideas about projects such as;
* Storm Drain Marking
