UK just launched a website and online course for a Backyard Streams Program. The online course is run through Canvas and is open to the public. Those individuals who complete the course will receive a certificate noting they are Certified Backyard Stream Stewards. For those not interested in enrolling in the course but want to learn more, webinars are available on our new YouTube channel UK Watershed Protection and Restoration. While the course and materials are designed for urban homeowners, many topics are relevant to a wider audience.


Have questions or comments about backyard streams? Please reach out to Amanda Gumbert, Ph.D. ( and Carmen Agouridis, Ph.D., P.E., M.P.P. (
