We practice stream protection through education, restoration, and research.

 

Together, we've come to know the awesome power of our rivers. Over centuries, we harnessed that power by intentionally redirecting streams to protect property and people. We recognize the many benefits streams contribute to our communities, but also the risks they pose. With local knowledge and the latest practices, we can begin to achieve the goals we've set for stream management in Denning and Neversink.
