Great learning opportunity

“The StreamCare project is proving to be a great learning opportunity for my students at West Orient Middle School. We get to work along with the EMSWCD to improve the stream that runs right through our school property.” -on StreamCare program

Useful and enjoyable

“It is now not only useful but enjoyable to look at due to all of the clearing and planting. The team has been knowledgeable, effective, and courteous. Let me take this opportunity to wholeheartedly tell you that this is an amazing program.” -on StreamCare program

Free and beneficial to fish

“I think that all landowners along the creek should use the StreamCare program. It’s free and beneficial to the fish population and the wildlife.”

Small area beauty

“The beauty that can be created in such a small area that not only attracts animals and insects but is much more water wise and more fun to work with than a lawn.”

About inspiration

“It was really about inspiration for me. I felt that I had reached the end of my gardening possibilities and this gave me new inspiration. I also got to see more mature versions of some of the plants I have.”

Reluctant lawn

“I have been reluctant to get rid of my lawn, as I fear that planting things all over my yard may appear trashy. I saw some very good examples of yards with no lawn at all in front, and I am a little more inspired to go ahead and do it.”

Right plant, right place

“Love seeing how people incorporate all the ideals of saving water, using native plants, right plant and right place, fun and interesting yards.”
