StreamCare on time

“They showed up when they were scheduled, performed their work unobtrusively, and followed up in accordance with the agreement. I would highly recommend the StreamCare program to any landowner who would like to improve the quality of a river or creek on their property.”

Yard work

“When people think about yard work, they think it’s really hard, but when you are working with classmates, it gets done so much faster and didn’t seem as difficult. It helped me realize that teamwork is a lot easier than doing it by myself. The project helped us bond together as friends and I’m glad for that.” -Missy, 12th Grade

Learning to identify native plants

“It is a cool project that taught us how to identify native plants in a small area next to our school so that when we go on hikes we can already identify a lot of them on our own. Being able to learn about native plants is a skill I’m glad I’ve learned because I can share it with my friends.” – Jory, 12th grade
