Clean Water Workshops

Creek Freaks equips educators to deliver fun and effective watershed education lessons to youth. Join us for a one or two-day workshop to explore exciting, hands-on lessons and venture outside for SOS stream monitoring training! These workshops are a great resource for teachers and non-formal educators.

Save Our Streams introduces adult participants to a basic overview of stream ecology, as well as training in water quality monitoring, including hands-on activities and a day of biological, chemical, and physical stream monitoring in the field. Participants will learn how to assess stream habitat and watershed land uses, and will also receive the tools they need to start their own stewardship or restoration project.
