Stream Care


There are many ways for you to help get involved with stream care. The Rivers Programs at the Iowa Department of Natural Resources is involved with not only recreation, but preservation, conservation, restoration and stream bank stabilization. It is important that we all become good stewards of our streams and lakes. Learn more about protected water areas, river clean-ups around the state and what you can do to help.
