Adopt a Stream

Adopt-A-Stream is one of the outreach activities offered by Riverwatch. The programme has been set up to promote the importance of protecting natural resources by encouraging hands on education and personal involvement. It provides an opportunity for groups to get together to tidy up and look after a local stream or river.

Adopt-A-Stream Availability: All year round
Suitable for: Primary & Post Primary (8+ year olds)

Maintaining clean waterways for our native salmon and trout is no easy task. The Loughs Agency prides its self on managing one of the most successful salmon fisheries in the Western Europe. Waterway cleanup projects create valuable positive learning experiences and help the environment and local community immensely.

The success of a clean up event will depend upon the organisation and implementation of a project plan. Riverwatch provides adopting groups with pack containing useful information, contacts, and checklists to help organise a clean up from beginning to end. Riverwatch can also provide groups with litterpickers, gloves, high visibility vests and rubbish bags.
