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.

A Big Win for the Bay

As we prepare for the upcoming International Coastal Clean-up Day on September 17th, we can celebrate San Francisco’s ban on Styrofoam that was just passed in June and that will go into effect next January.
