South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream is a volunteer citizen science program with growing enthusiasm and membership for the protection of South Carolina's waterways. SC DHEC and Clemson's Center for Watershed Excellence co-lead this program with the help of partners across the state.

Through SC Adopt-a-Stream, citizen scientists learn to monitor the health and cleanliness of their local waterways. Data collected by SCAAS volunteers is entered into a public database that serves as a valuable resource and augments the monitoring efforts of local and statewide water regulatory agencies. SCAAS volunteers have a passion for community involvement and a love of the outdoors.

You don’t need to be an environmentalist, angler, or scholar to join this effort. All are welcome to find more information, seek training, and add to the knowledge base of watershed health in South Carolina!
