Join the Texas Stream Team!
Join the Texas Stream Team!

Join the Texas Stream Team – a group of some 8,000 men, women, and children who have been active stewards of Texas waterways since 1991.

If you canoe, kayak or stand up paddle – or would like to –you can become founding members of the Texas Stream Team Paddlers.

You’ll be trained and equipped to monitor the quality of your favorite lakes, streams, or estuaries. You’ll become part of a citizen-based early warning system. Your data will support important water research, management, and conservation efforts.

Texas Stream Team also works with educators, parents, youth-focused organizations, and others to teach young people about water, the environment, and the enjoyment and stewardship of both.  If you are interested but you don’t have a boat, don’t worry: There are lots of landside opportunities too. For example, every year, some 125,000 visit our Spring Lake education facility to learn about Texas water.

Texas Stream Team Paddlers is now hosting orientations and trainings across the state.
