History with the AAS Program
Environmental Science Club has been active in the Adopt-A-Stream program for about 7 years! This predates when the Palouse conservation district took on the project. Since we’ve been actively involved in adopt-a-stream, we have had about 30-35 people participate in stream cleanup events with us!
Reason for joining AAS Program
We decided to join the program because we want to make as much of a difference as possible in the Pullman community. Our club values the protection and preservation of the environment and the ecosystems that support the world, and want to prevent as much damage as possible so that we can live in a more sustainable world. We believe in not only saying what we believe, but also in taking actions that reflect our values and make a positive impact on the world.
Most rewarding experience with the AAS Program
Our members find that the most rewarding part of being a Steward for this program is the knowledge that we are preventing harm from coming to the ecosystems, wildlife, and humans that rely on the river further downstream. It is also a great bonding experience for our members to be able to spend time with each other while also helping to reduce pollution of the river.
Favorite memory from AAS Clean-Ups
We found some cool things down there, like snake skins, a tire, some old real estate signs, and a geocache box!
