The Kitsap County Stream Team will be holding an Open House on Tuesday, May

Current, past and future volunteers are all welcome to attend and find out
what Stream Team Watersheds Network does and how you can get involved to
make a difference in your watershed environment. Training, sign-ups and
other information will be available for those interested in stream
monitoring this fall. There will be some hands-on displays highlighting
current activities along with ideas on environmental stewardship
opportunities. All ages are welcome.
The Stream Team program provides technical assistance, education, watershed
monitoring and limited financial support that encourages community-based,
stewardship activities including biological monitoring, restoration and
other activities. Stream Team is supported by the Surface and Stormwater
Management Program and the Department of Community Development.
