Town of Wake Forest, Adopt a Stream (Smith Creek)The Adopt-A-Stream Program allows volunteers to monitor their neighborhood streams and determine the stream's health. 

Among the many benefits of volunteering, the Adopt-A-Stream Program will help educate citizens about the health of our local streams, protect our stream resources and the knowledge that you are making a difference.

Volunteer groups shall monitor a specific stream segment for a one year period, with the option to renew the agreement after each year is complete. Projects include water quality monitoring once a month, annual stream clean up, macro invertebrate counts twice a year (early spring and late fall), buffer restoration, and stream enhancement.

Available Stream Segments

All established sections are adopted at this time, additional sections can be added as requested
