If you are intersted in an out-of-doors opportunity for your students to get involved in a stewardship role, to implement what they have learned from the Project WET activities, you may be interested in adopting a stream, river, lake, or estuary near your school through the Stream Watch Program.  For more information:   Link to the Stream Watch home page
