Bay Area watersheds need a helping hand-yours

We all live in a watershed. At home, at work or at your child's school, chances are that water is trickling and gushing underfoot, flowing into the San Francisco Bay.

Our watersheds connect us to each other and to the entire Bay Area. Everything we do-from mountaintop to marsh-affects our water and wildlife, our air and soil quality, our families and communities.

But our ties to local water resources have unraveled. Birds and fish have fled in the face of urban and industrial development. Shorelines sprout trash instead of grasses.

Join The Watershed Project in restoring the natural wonder of the San Francisco Bay-one creek, marsh and watershed at a time.

Thanks to all of Our Earth Day Volunteers!

We want to give a huge thanks to all of our volunteers who came out and celebrated Earth Day with us this April. Our Earth Day celebrations consisted of four inspiring events, working with over 300 volunteers to clean up our creeks and shorelines.

Lobbying for Watersheds at the State Capitol

Last month, two of our Green Collar Corps members, Emanuel and Luis, boarded the Amtrak early in the morning to go to Sacramento for a day of lobbying. Leaving their work gloves and shovels in Richmond and putting on their business casual instead, the guys headed to the Capitol for the third year in a row with the California Urban Streams Partnership.
