Stream Team #463

Missouri Stream Team is a network of citizens who are concerned about Missouri streams, and provides an opportunity for all to become involved in stream conservation. Stream Team membership is free to any interested citizen, family or organization. Stream Teams often adopt a backyard stream, although doing so is not a requirement. If you are interested in education, stewardship and advocacy on behalf of Missouri streams, Stream Team is for you.

The Clean Stream Education Initiative created a statewide network of secondary school science teachers of watersheds in St. Charles, Boone, Cole, Audrain, Cooper, Lincoln, Pettis, Madison, Pemiscot, Jackson, Bolivar, Franklin, St. Louis, Osage, St. Louis City, and Howard Counties. Teachers will implement a science curriculum based on water quality testing methods and fieldwork that meets the Grade Level Expectations of the Missouri State Show Me Standards. By the end of the project students will be participating in volunteer water quality monitoring on local streams, creating Stream Teams, organizing stream litter pick ups, and making educational presentations about water quality in your community.
