Stream Team is a program coordinated by the communities of Olympia, Tumwater, Lacey and Thurston County, with funding from storm and surface water utilities. Stream Team provides citizens the opportunity to learn about the environment, attend workshops and participate in restoration and watershed management projects.

One of the most popular event series Stream Team sponsors is Marine Creature Mondays, which are held at Boston Harbor Marina. Scuba divers collect underwater creatures and bring them up onto the dock, where marine biologists explain and explore the critters. Hands-on exploration of sea stars and other specimens is encouraged.
