What is a 4-H Stream Team?

A group of youth actively engaged in water education and activities in their own community. 4-H Stream Teams complete 4-H Water Project activities and learn about the water that flows through their local watershed. Activities include topics such as water use and conservation, water science and cycles, and water quality. 4-H Stream Teams also choose and participate in service projects as identified in their watershed. Service projects may lead to improved water use efficiency in a community or address water quality issues and enhancements in a local stream among other important topics.

How do I become part of the 4-H Stream Teams program?

4-H Stream Teams is currently undergoing big revisions and will be unveiled as a new youth watershed education program for Penn State Extension soon. Stay tuned for more information.
