The Stream Stewards Program, centered on 1,100 acres of open space in the First State National Historical Park, engages the community and targets youth from Wilmington in a sustainable citizen-science program. It contributes to land and water management through monitoring water resources and education programs that lead to conservation action. Another goal of the program is to create a replicable citizen-science model that develops a committed and active constituency for watershed protection.
