Adopt-a-Stream

Our local streams are a vital natural resource that connects to the Chattahoochee River, which provides drinking water for millions in the metro Atlanta area. In an effort to protect and preserve these fundamental resources and the ecosystems they create, Keep Smyrna Beautiful engages environmentally conscious volunteers to monitor the water quality at 13 Smyrna streams through Georgia Adopt-a-Stream.

Commitment

Volunteers adopt one stream and conduct monthly monitorings. Monitoring can be completed at anytime during the month. Due to the training involved in the program, volunteers for this program are asked to make a year-long commitment.

Training

A training workshop is required prior to be certified to monitor a stream. Certification lasts for one year and volunteers must be recertified annually if they wish to continue monitoring. All supplies are provided at no cost to the volunteer.

How to Get Involved

Fill out our online volunteer application found on the Volunteer page.
