HRWC’s  Adopt-A-Stream Program has collected monitoring data on the Huron River for seventeen years, and it ranks among the premier water-protection programs in the nation. With our volunteers, we produce a body of respected scientific data that is utilized by governments and citizens alike.  This data motivates and convinces decision-makers to take the best actions to protect the watershed.  Additionally, the volunteers become our strongest stewards leading their governments and neighbors in river stewardship.  The direct outcomes of our Adopt-A-Stream program result in better habitat and cleaner water.

Thanks to the generous support of the Upton Foundation, we have a way for you to help and double your donation. The Upton Foundation is matching all gifts, dollar for dollar, given to support Adopt-A-Stream received before 12/31/2009. All contributions received through this special appeal will be dedicated to river monitoring and stewardship, which protect the future of our fresh water. Our goal is to raise $40,000 for Adopt-A-Stream and with your help, we can achieve this goal.
