The Streamkeeper Certification training course is an excellent introduction to fish habitat and stream restoration. This two-day course educates participants about stream habitat, promotes a stewardship ethic and informs participants about stream protection and restoration options.
It is a part of our mission to share information, education, public awareness, and equipment resources with Oceanside communities and schools to help complete streamkeeping and stewardship projects.
MVIHES aims to foster the development of lifelong respect, understanding and care for the environment by providing educational resources and learning opportunities with a focus on local watersheds.
This area of our website provides information on the types of educational services we offer our community. If you would like any information about any or our programs, or assistance with a stewardship project in your community, please Contact Us.
A storm drain collects rain and melted snow that runs off hard surfaces such as roads,roofs,parking lots and driveways. They empty into underground storm sewer systems. Many of these storm sewers discharge their contents directly into local waters, which are important for recreational activities, as well as habitat for fish and other aquatic wildlife.
