The mission of the Adopt A Stream Foundation (AASF) is "to teach people how to become stewards of their watersheds". Our small dedicated staff and volunteers carry out that mission by conducting Streamkeeper Academy training events, producing and distributing environmental education materials nationally and internationally, and providing stream and wetland restoration assistance to communities from local watersheds.
Each year, in thousands of rivers and streams, the Pacific Northwest witnesses a remarkable natural phenomenon as millions of salmon return to their place of birth to spawn future generations…
The Adopt A Stream Foundation (AASF) a 501(c)3 non-profit organization was established to ensure that Pacific Northwest streams continue to provide healthy spawning and rearing habitat for salmon, trout, steelhead, and other wildlife. At the same time, serve our growing population by providing clean drinking water, applicable knowledge via environmental education, and beautiful places for rest and relaxation.
AASF has a diverse Board of Directors and a staff dedicated to training the public how to protect and enhance northwest ecosystems. While we are known for conducting Streamkeeper Field Training events throughout the Pacific Northwest, we have now developed the Northwest Stream Center, a regional environmental learning center and nature preserve to increase our capacity to teach everyone how to become stewards to their watersheds.
This year, The Adopt A Stream Foundation is gearing up to launch a green infrastructure initiative with the goal of remodeling our Visitor’s Building to meet sustainable infrastructure standards—think white metal roof to reflect heat, additional solar panels that link to commercial solar batteries, replacing propane heaters with electric heat pumps, and much more!
We are on the hunt for a building designer/architect who might be willing to donate some time to us as we develop our design concepts for an information brochure.
