STREAM Girls video

The Rogue River Home Rivers Initiative is a very active local organizer of the STREAM Girls initiative. This video was produced by TU National and features the local efforts.

STREAM Girls is an outdoor STEM program for girls. This watershed experience employs STEM-education (science, technology, engineering, math) plus recreation and arts to explore a local stream. Every person is a citizen of her watershed, and TU has partnered with Girl Scouts USA to show what that means to us. By visiting a local stream and having the opportunity to observe it as scientists, anglers, and artists, girls will get the complete picture of what their stream could mean to them.

Over the course of multiple sessions, you will lead the Girl Scouts in observing a stream, collecting flow data, sampling macro-invertebrates (aka aquatic bugs), fly tying, and fly casting. Each day also gives the girls time to explore the natural area and record their thoughts and observations in their handbooks.
