Do you live and garden along a stream?
As a homeowner with property along a stream, you know the beauty and value the stream adds to your home. But more than just a pretty spot or a place to fish, your streamside is part of a larger system of plants and animals that live near and within the stream itself.
Balancing your needs as a homeowner and gardener with the needs of the larger ecosystem and community for clean water is what this site is all about.
