Watershed and Stream-quality Organizations in the U.S.

Here is a list of nationwide watershed and stream-quality organizations in the United States. A watershed is a body of water, such as a stream, and the area of land that feeds it.

Volunteer stream quality monitoring and Adopt-A-Stream programs

Stream quality monitoring involves sampling bugs (benthic macroinvertebrates) in streams. The Adopt-A-Stream programs involve cleaning trash from a stream area, and reporting problems.
