What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Streamkeeper Academy classes provide the diverse audiences throughout the Pacific NW, young and old, with training on how to protect and enhance fish and wildlife habitat. AASF Fish and Wildlife staff are restoring stream and wetland habitat in urbanizing areas of Washington State. Popular publications, like the "Streamkeepers Field Guide" help volunteers to monitor the ecological health of streams across the U.S. and Canada. A $4.5 million campaign is underway to develop the NW Stream Center as a place to train 60,000 students a year how to become "Streamkeepers."
