At our national convention in July, attendees brainstormed about the League's next "big idea." The starting point was a simple but important question: what do we want the League to be known for?
A common and familiar theme came out of these discussions: clean water
. Specifically, monitoring more streams to ensure clean water for all Americans. The national organization melded suggestions from nearly 20 separate small-group discussions into one "big idea": the Clean Water Challenge!
Together, our challenge is to monitor 100,000 more streams nationwide by 2022.
We're inviting every League member to join the Clean Water Challenge
and help expand volunteer stream monitoring. Your support could range from talking about clean water with neighbors to starting a stream monitoring group. It all starts by joining our growing list of League members and supporters who want to protect our streams and waterways.
By joining the Clean Water Challenge, you will be the first to receive information on next steps in this campaign, how you can help, and tips for taking action in your community to reach our goal.
JOIN THE CLEAN WATER CHALLENGE!
We will have more information about the national campaign to achieve this goal in the coming months. In the meantime, you can find information about stream monitoring on the League's website
