Team Streams biggest weakness: we haven't submitted any points for outside Community Events (each worth 50 points) or social shares (worth 25 points each)! Read how to submit points in the section below.
Points for a Signature Event: If you have registered for a 2021 Conservation Games signature event and you attend the event, you do not have to email your staff liaison in order to get points. We already have record of your attendance!
Points for a Community Event: If you attended another community event that was listed on the event calendar, email your Team Streams staff liaison Ashley at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, the event name, and if you also shared a selfie or post online about the event. We will not be able to give you the points you earned unless you email your staff liaison! Attend a Community Event to earn 50 points for Team Streams!
Points for an independent activity: If you attend an event that you think supports conservation efforts in the Richmond region or organize your own self guided clean-up, learning activity, etc., share a picture of you doing the activity on social media to earn points and then email the Team Streams staff liaison Ashley at email@example.com to let her know what you did and where it was shared online!
Once you register for the Conservation Games and join Team Streams, you will be added to the Team Streams Google Group listserv.
