We all love our streams in the Ashokan Water­shed! To show appre­ci­a­tion for our watershed’s streams, fam­i­lies or indi­vid­u­als are invit­ed to sub­mit a short video, pho­tographs or art­work depict­ing an activ­i­ty by or on a local stream. This could include fish­ing, boating/tubing, paint­ing, bird watch­ing or just about any activ­i­ty on or near the water. AWSMP staff will com­pile the videos/photographs/artwork and share them with oth­ers at an event streamed online on Feb­ru­ary 24, 2021 start­ing at 7:00 p.m. After we share the videos/photographs/artwork, AWSMP staff will be on hand to answer any ques­tions you have about streams.

Guide­lines for submission:

  • Sub­mit only orig­i­nal video, pho­to­graph, or artwork
  • Video sub­mis­sions must be no more than 5 min­utes in length
  • Orig­i­nal video, pho­to­graph or art­work must show an activ­i­ty on or near­by a stream
  • Orig­i­nal video, pho­to­graph, or art­work must have a stream fea­tured prominently
  • Activ­i­ties shown must be on the stream or in very close prox­im­i­ty. Some exam­ples of stream-relat­ed activ­i­ties include:
