The Kiski-Conemaugh Stream Team operates on an extremely lean operation budget, allowing 88 cents of every dollar leveraged to go towards conservation and education projects! Still, your support is necessary to allow our work to continue. There are many ways you can support the Kiski-Conemaugh Stream Team...

You can also sponsor the sampling of a water monitoring point or two or three or however many you wish! For $100.00 a site, water samples will be collected monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually, depending on the needs of the groups who are utilizing these data. Adoptions are valid for one calendar year. Your name or that of a loved one will be listed beside the monitoring point on our website, and you will be recognized in our annual report and at our appreciation picnic. To view a list of adoptable water monitoring sites, please visit our AMD Data page or contact us!

Good Search and Good Shop
Another great way to support the Stream Team is to forget Google and GoodSearch instead!
GoodSearch is a search engine powered by Yahoo that gives the Conemaugh Valley Conservancy approximately $0.013 for each valid search. It doesn’t sound like much, but think how much you and your family use the Internet. It adds up!
GoodShop provides the Conemaugh Valley Conservancy with a percentage (up to 37%) of every purchase made through the GoodShop portal. You enter your store’s website through the GoodShop site and shop as you normally would. There is no additional cost to you! Hundreds of stores like Wal-Mart, Target, and Amazon.com participate. Remember this come Christmas!
Funds raised through GoodSearch and GoodShop go to support the Stream Team. You can check on how we’re doing by clicking on “Amount Raised.”
Please consider helping the CVC by making GoodSearch your default search engine. You only have to select the Conemaugh Valley Conservancy (Hollsopple, PA) as your chosen charity once as GoodSearch stores your selection. Have your friends support us too!
The Stream Team could not operate without the support of dozens of individuals, businesses, and organizations who value its work. Thank you for your generosity and dedication to education and conservation!
