Have you ever wondered if there are Stream Team volunteers in your area, and if so, what they are doing?
Chances are, with an estimated 80,000 volunteers statewide, someone is doing great work on a stream near you and now there is a way for you to see just what kinds of stewardship activities are happening around the state.
The Missouri Stream Team Program has recently launched a new and improved interactive map that showcases Team activity locations and Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring data.
The latest version of the Stream Team Interactive Map is powered by ESRI, a leader in mapping and geographical information systems. Not only does this resource provide an avenue for our volunteers’ hard work to be displayed and access to data collected, but it also offers numerous mapping capabilities.
Users can choose from a dozen different map views such as street and terrain views, satellite imagery, and topographic maps. They are also able to mark points on the map, measure distances and areas, as well as print the maps of locations of interest and adopted streams.
