Youth Stream Team
Stream Team youth are a special band of scientists in the making. Participants learn how to collect stream restoration data on various creeks on the south side of Mount St. Helens. The valuable information they obtain helps scientists in salmon reintroduction efforts. With funding from the National Forest Foundation, the Bruce and Mary Louise Cook Foundation, Walmart, Columbia Sportswear and Korkers, the Institute has partnered with the Vancouver Police Activities League to select over 20 youths each summer.
Stream Team continues in the summer of 2013, offering urban youth an authentic field science experience and a chance to build their leadership skills.
