Springfield’s Stream Team

Volunteer options available

Stream Team features two types of service projects: drop-in events that we host every season, and customized events planned for specific groups.

  1. Drop-in events – Stream Team partners with Willamalane Park and Recreation District to host seasonal plantings and clean-up events. Sign up below for our mailing list, to receive an invitation to these activities.
  2. Custom group events – All our events are held outdoors, along Springfield’s waterways, so Stream Team offers a fun and safe way for groups to improve the health and beauty our community while maintaining physical distance. We are happy to discuss a custom service project for your group! Please contact us with questions.

About Stream Team

Protecting Springfield’s streams – with your help! Hosted by the City of Springfield’s Stormwater Team, Stream Team is a program connecting individual volunteers and service groups to activities that directly address areas of concern identified by the City, to improve the health and beauty of Springfield’s waterways.

Projects usually consist of planting native plants or picking up litter in locations such as public trails and are completed in a couple hours.
