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.



First Stop: Rooftops

Someday soon we'll have rain again. In the meantime, you may be pondering installing a rain barrel or two to catch this precious substance from your roof in the next storm.

Watershed Teaching Tools is the Happening Event in October

What do a big-eyed bug and a bioswale have in common? Watershed Teaching Tools, that's what. This upcoming free workshop, to be held Oct. 25th in San Francisco, will help illuminate the impacts of humans on our watersheds.
