2 Sponsors Recognized For Adopt-A-Stream Program, Brodhead Creek Watershed Assn

Sponsor ($300) and Steward ($500) donations provide support and equipment that BWA volunteers use to monitor the watershed.
More than 70 volunteers test local waters monthly to ensure Pocono waters are clean and pure. Ongoing support from community leaders such as Desaki and Strauser Nature’s Helpers is vital to continue the program.
Adopt-a-Stream sponsors directly support StreamWatchers – 70+ volunteers who monthly monitor water quality at more than 100 sites in the 312-square-mile Brodhead Watershed (close to half of Monroe County).
Volunteers note any changes in their streams and report “red flags” – major changes in the appearance or the chemical tests performed. Every year, at least 20 new volunteers learn Streamwatch protocols.
For information about the Streamwatch program, how to become a volunteer or an Adopt-a-Stream sponsor, visit the Adopt-A-Stream webpage, send email to: or call 570-839-1120.
