We are pausing the Stream Stewards program for 2023 to in order to reevaluate and better serve participants and the environment.
However, there are still a number of ways to get involved with our StreamTeam program. We invite you to join us as a planter or team leader at our October 28 Make a Difference Day tree planting, and check our website for other volunteer opportunities.
We welcome any feedback about the Stream Stewards program. Let us know what you think at [email protected].

Workshops and Events
The seven-week Stream Stewards course will increase your awareness of geology, hydrology, riparian and wetland habitat, wildlife, water quality and stream restoration. Stewards also enjoy social events and continuing education workshops throughout the year. Previous continuing education topics have included winter twig identification, bird call identification and bioengineering.
All Stream Stewards receive hands-on experience and teaching opportunities, plus the fun of teaming up with like-minded individuals. Upon completion of the workshops, Stewards have greater understanding of the critical components of a healthy environment, including what makes a healthy habitat and how societies affect habitat.
Tuition is free of charge. However, Stream Stewards are asked to complete 45 hours of volunteer time through a variety of activities with the StreamTeam or a program partner in their first year. Many of these activities include leadership opportunities and Stream Steward exclusives. We offer volunteer opportunities to suit everyone’s interests and abilities!
