Getting Started Stream Tracking
Welcome to Stream Tracker! You have joined a nation-wide network of fellow stream enthusiast that are contributing observations of when and where small streams without continuous flow are flowing. Stream Tracker's use their mobile phones to navigate to streams and record their observations of flow conditions. They then upload to the project's online database at citsci.org where the growing data set can be viewed or downloaded by any project member.
