We are glad you are interested in learning more about your local streams and creeks. Urban streams are the lifeblood of our community. They provide drinking water to NC residents and provide necessary habitat for wildlife in the urban landscape.

We hope that this website will offer you the resources to LEARN about the ecology of freshwater streams, find out what is happening in DURHAM to improve creek and stream health, and CONNECT with the work that people living in our community are doing to better understand, preserve, and restore these incredibly valuable resources in our city.
