Palouse Conservation District
Contact: Jodi Prout
Number of Participants: 20
What is your history with the Adopt-A-Stream Program? How many years have you participated? Number of volunteers involved over the years?
"Palouse Conservation District took ownership of the Adopt A Stream Program starting in 2018. Our Stream Steward team also includes our wonderful AmeriCorps members and interns at the district."
Why did your group decide to join the Adopt-A- Stream Program?
"We decided to adopt our own section in 2019 to serve as an example of stream stewardship for the Pullman community.There are many ways that PCD staff helps streams in the Palouse region, but cleaning debris from our waterways has a direct and immediate impact that can be seen."
What do you find to be most rewarding as an Adopt-A-Stream Steward?
Any memorable stories to share from past cleaning events?
"Treasures we have found include: bike wheel and tire, soccer ball, dino toys, storm drain caps, and more."
