The Stream Team
The Stream Team is currently working in nine regional schools, introducing students to the great outdoors through hands-on learning. We partner with Trout Unlimited and the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission to bring trout into classrooms, where students have a hand in raising them. In Spring, before the end of the year, the students release their trout into a state-approved body of water and often participate in a day of Outdoor Discovery Workshops.
In addition to education, the Stream Team also focuses on monitoring local streams and rivers, providing invaluable data on Abandoned Mine Drainage (AMD) to local Watersheds and conservation organizations. This work is important to ensure clean water throughout the valley.
