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:
  • Fishing
  • Boating/Kayaking/Canoeing/Tubing
  • Swimming
  • Snorkeling
  • Bird Watching
  • Drawing/Sketching/Painting
  • Photography
  • Exploration of stream (ex: turning over rocks to find and examine macroinvertebrates)
  • Viewing fall foliage
  • Any other activity where the stream is a central feature of the activity
  • The stream shown must be within the Ashokan Reservoir Watershed. If you’re not sure if your stream is in the Ashokan Watershed please visit the AWSMP website and look at the map. Any stream listed on that webpage is acceptable. Unnamed tributary streams not listed on the webpage but still within the boundaries of the Ashokan Watershed are also acceptable.
  • Limit of 2 submissions per individual/household
