The Madison Stream Team is a group of local citizens trained to collect water quality data on streams throughout the Madison Watershed. The program began in 2010, when the first training was held with staff from the Montana State University Extension – Water Quality program and the Montana Watercourse. Members of the Madison Stream Team, then, began collecting data on local streams to better understand conditions, and to identify potential concerns that can be addressed through conservation and restoration actions.

Eight years later, the program has continued to gain momentum and grow support from throughout the community. Each spring, volunteers go through training, to both refresh and advance their water monitoring skills. Volunteers then assign themselves to one of the several waterbodies, and then commit to sampling dates that work for their schedule (typically 1-2 days per month).
