Stream Walk and Boat Brigade Resources

In January 2015, Riverkeeper was invited by the Rosendale Commission for the Conservation of the Environment to make a presentation about how stream walks can be used to help understand and address contamination sources, including the fecal contamination citizen scientists are helping to document with Riverkeeper’s help. The event was attended by representatives from environmental advisory boards in Wawarsing, Rochester and Kingston.

Subsequently, the Wallkill River Watershed Alliance began hosting a series of Boat Brigades, and towns in the Rondout Creek watershed hosted their own boat brigade as part of Ulster County Creek Week in September 2015.

We aim to include in this blog post a list of resources for groups interested in stream walks and boat brigades. It isn’t comprehensive, and we will update it as new resources come to our attention.
