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.

Joins us on January 28 for the Greening Urban Watersheds Symposium!



What Would MLK Think About Climate Change?

Although he wrote this in the context of the Civil Rights Movement, I cannot help but think that Dr. King would recognize the relevance of these words to the current struggle to turn the tide on climate change.

Greening Urban Watersheds

Before cities and suburbs covered the landscape with asphalt and concrete, the Bay Area was a much softer, spongier place.
When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it is attached to the rest of the world.”
