Mike Clifford Posted May 10, 2008 Report Share Posted May 10, 2008 As the ISA Adopt-a-Stream Program (details: http://illinoissmallmouthalliance.net/html/adoptastream.html ) starts to gain momentum, one of the first questions I have been faced with is this: Which streams, and which sections of those streams is the ISA membership willing to adopt? Well? I can't answer that question for our 500+ members. It's up to you. The only caveat is that the Kankakee River currently has an Adopt-a-River program, and the ISA participates in it each and every year. You will most definitely find similar isolated cases where streams or sections of stream are "adopted" for similar purposes. The intent of the ISA program is to fill in the gaps where people are not currently doing stream clean-ups, water quality monitoring and promoting a conservation ethic among stakeholders. With that in mind- Where are you willing to devote one day a year to picking up trash and dipping for a water quality test? Let's have it, gang. You responses will eventually determine where we show everybody else our intent and the ISA conservation ethic setting an example for the state and eventually the nation. It all starts right here.......with you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
