Please join us as we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Save Our Streams (SOS) program. With the creation of SOS, the League pioneered citizen-based stream monitoring in 1969, and gave people everywhere a simple, reliable tool to assess and protect the streams where they live. Over the past 40 years, volunteers have spent countless hours analyzing water quality and developing solutions that protect our waters.

In addition to celebrating this rich history of accomplishments, we will spend 2009 highlighting the conservation work of League members and other volunteers all across the country. Over the next 12 months, the League will provide materials and support for your stream conservation events. Please visit this site frequently for more information. Coming soon: project ideas, commemorative items, and media outreach to help you celebrate the anniversary.

Citizen involvement in watershed protection and conservation activities has proven to have measurable, positive results on the quality of our nation's waters. Today, more than ever, citizen involvement is critical to the protection and restoration of America's waters. Recognizing the importance of the work you do, we provide tools and resources to help you conserve local waterways.

Search the web site to find the tools you need to become active in the fight for the conservation of America's waters. If you still have questions give us a call at 1-800-BUG-IWLA. Staff is generally available from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST to offer you consultation over the phone, assist you in research, or help to connect you with another organization currently working on a similar issue. If no one is available, simply leave a message and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. You can also contact us by email at for the same free services.
