Abstract: I discuss several projects aimed at exploring the accretion history and present substructure of the Milky Way halo, including: a survey for tidal debris around known Galactic satellites, a large area survey of the Sagittarius dwarf spheroidal system and the Galactic anticenter tidal stream using the 2MASS database, and a K giant survey for new tidal features from former, now destroyed satellites in the halo.
