Streamside Landowners

It is a special privilege to live next to a stream or river - the relaxing trickle and flow of running water; the cool, moist air; birdsongs heard in the streamside trees and shrubs; and the laughter of children discovering frogs and fish. However, streams and rivers sometimes flood and erode, and not all are cool and clean waterways. 

To learn how you can help steward your streamside property to bring back the beauty and function of streams, and protect stream banks and the surrounding land from floods, visit our Streamside Living page.
