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 two-day program provides an in-depth study of watersheds, as well as hands-on training in chemical and biological parameters important to a healthy stream. In addition, the workshop will:
- Increase awareness of non-point 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
* Stream Clean-ups
* Advocacy and More
This workshop will have an extra element to it this year! An optional 1/2 day on June 14th can be added to the 2 days of the workshop with a small additional cost. On June 14th a canoe trip on Black Creek (which is a Wild and Scenic stream) is planned. You will learn about the flora and fauna of the area and also participate in a clean-up of the river.
