Brodhead Watershed Association

Dedicated to protecting our pocono waters


BWA's Adopt-a-Stream program


Join some of the largest – and smallest – organizations in our area who believe in clean water: Join Brodhead Watershed Association’s Adopt-a-Stream Program.


If clean water is important to you, become an Adopt-a-Stream Sponsor or an Adopt-a-Stream Steward.


As a steward or a sponsor, clubs, businesses and other organizations in our watershed support BWA’s highly successful, all-volunteer Streamwatch Program.


Streamwatch trains volunteers and equips them to become stewards of their local stream. A corps of about 70 volunteers monitors more than 100 stream locations every month. Volunteers learn to use scientific testing kits to check and record pH, nitrate-nitrogen, and ortho-phosphate. They also record water and air temperature and their observations of stream conditions.




--Membership in Brodhead Watershed Association, proving your commitment to protecting our most valuable resource – clean water. This includes discounts to BWA events.


--The satisfaction of knowing that your contribution supports BWA’s Streamwatch volunteer-stewards.


--Ongoing recognition every chance we get, such as the BWA website, quarterly newsletter, annual Membership Celebration, Annual Report and in a press release when you join.


--A handsome plaque for public display recognizing your support.


--Your stream or your own Streamwatch site will be identified with your organization.


Become an Adopt-a-Stream Steward with a $500 annual contribution or an Adopt-a-Stream Sponsor with a $350 annual contribution ... you’ll be in very fine company!
