Building a legacy of healthy streams and shorelines

Our Vision

Everyone knows, respects and protects local streams and shorelines.

Volunteer

We offer many ways for you to take action to protect and conserve local watersheds. Remove invasive plants. Clean up shorelines. Participate in stream restoration projects. Teach students. Meet like-minded people.

Educate
