Adopt-a-Stream is a year-round program with varying activities. The amount
of involvement is up to you. Streams may be adopted by individuals,
schools, organizations, and companies.
I would like general information on the Adopt-a-Stream program.
I have a stream I would like to adopt and would like to register for the program.
Stream Search is an opportunity for people to do real science in
partnership with WMEAC and
the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. Volunteers collect
information about the health of our streams and rivers. Stream Search events are
held twice yearly, in spring and fall, with training for team leaders. There are
two ways you can get involved:
You can be trained as a team leader
and take a group of volunteers out on Stream Search days. Trainings are held two
Saturdays per year, and Stream Search events are two Saturdays per year.
Or, you can be a volunteer on Stream Search day, and our trained leaders will show
you how it's done. Waders and nets are provided. Stream Search events are held
twice per year, spring and fall, and are on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.
Next STREAM SEARCH event is
October 14, 2000 8 a.m.-12 noon
(Rain Date: October 28)
I would like to be a STREAM SEARCH team leader and would like to be notified of the next training opportunity.
I would like to be a volunteer and participate in
STREAM SEARCH events.
