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.


Best Local Parks and Creeks for the Summer

With school out and the Fourth of July already passed, summer is officially here! The East Bay is a remarkable place to explore nature and cool off in on these long sunny days, especially with access to shady creeks, redwood forests, and the occasional swimming spot.

On Your Doorstep

In 2017, The Watershed Project will be celebrating our 20 year anniversary. Leading up to this monumental event, we have been reflecting on our past, present, and future. Our Executive Director, Juliana Gonzalez, recently sat down with Karen Thurman of On Your Doorstep Magazine.
