Description

This year Texas Stream Team (TST) trained our 10,000th citizen scientist - an achievement all TST staff, citizen scientists, and partners accomplished together. In honor of this milestone and the many other successes TST has accomplished since 1991, we would like to invite all past and present TST citizen scientists and partners to come together to celebrate with us at Stream Team Fest!

Updates for this event will be sent out as final details fall into place. Please REGISTER by October 1 so we can plan accordingly. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to email us at txstreamteam@txstate.edu.
