Clean Creek Stewardship Workbook 

 

This informative, step-by-step workbook helps you examine your daily activities through thoughtful questions, and suggests ways you can reduce your impact on the creek. Let us know if you score 150 or higher and we will send you a personal stewardship certificate and a small laminated "Home of a Clean Creek Steward" sign to post in your yard for others to see!

 

The goal of the Clean Creek Stewardship program is to increase the participation of watershed residents in activities that will keep the waters of the creek clean and able to support recreation and good habitat. The small individual actions of residents throughout the watershed add up to big benefits that we can all enjoy.
